Arthur Ransome was born in Leeds in 1884 and moved to college. He was in Russia in 1917, also watched.
After visiting Scandinavia, he settled in the Lake District together with his own wife where, in 1929, he wrote Swallows and Amazons. And so began a writing career which has produced some of the children's treasures of all time. He won the very first Medal for his book.
Ransome died in 1967. He and his wife Evgenia lie buried in the churchyard of St Paul's Church, Rusland, at the southern Lake District.
