    Bowness on Windermere is a small town in the South Lakeland area of Cumbria, England. It has a church dating back to 1483, when Richard III occupied the throne of England. Bowness on Windermere was the inspiration for the lakeside town of Rio which featured heavily in Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons. Talk to us today if you’re wondering how to find a good solicitor in Bowness on Windermere. 

    Arthur Ransome was born in Leeds in 1884. His father was a professor of history at Yorkshire College in Leeds. Ransome studied at Rugby School in the same room as Lewis Carroll. After spending a year at Rugby, Ransome decided to leave the school and head to London. Upon arriving he took up with the London writing scene and became editor of the failing magazine Temple Bar Magazine.

    A court battle

    Ransome’s first book was a children’s book entitled The Nature Book for Children, it did not make a great impression but still sold admirably. In 1912 Ransome wrote a biography of Oscar Wilde which infuriated Wilde’s former lover, Lord Alfred Douglas. Lord Douglas decided to sue Ransome which lead to a court battle. Ransome won the suit but already cracks were starting to appear in his marriage to his wife, Ivy. They divorced in 1924.

    After his libel case had been dropped Ransome decided to go to Russia. This was the beginning of a lifelong fascination with the country. During the visit he met his second wife Evgenia who was Leon Trotsky’s personal secretary. After leaving Russia, Ransome returned to England and began working for The Guardian. Ransome was forced to work for M16 or his private life would be revealed.

    When visiting Moscow on behalf of The Guardian he would spy on Russian agents. After the First World War and his divorce from Ivy, Ransome married Evgenia. M16 became convinced of Ransome’s loyalty to Britain even though it was unknown to M16 that Ransome’s wife was smuggling diamonds for the KGB. It was after the First World War and his subsequent marriage to Evgenia that Ransome wrote his most famous book ‘Swallows and Amazons’.
