The Arts & Crafts Lakes School was a development of the Arts and Crafts Cotswold School.  The most significant designers and makers were Arthur Simpson, in Kendal, Stanley Webb Davies at Windermere and the Keswick School of Industrial Arts. Peter Hall of Staveley still produces furniture in this tradition.  

The Lakes School maintained the ideals with its simple lines, attention to the finest of details, the use of beautiful locally materials and the focus traditional tools and techniques.  In fact Stanley Webb Davies' workshop didn't use any power tools at all, even to cut logs from timber!

The dominant material was English Oak and typical decorative details often include exposed joints and  subtle carved details.
