On the Road (Pigeon Post)

Ransome changes lives. You can change his future.

Swallows and Amazons has been Arthur Ransome’s gift to readers for nearly 100 years. His legacy is an inspiration and many trace hobbies and careers back to him.

We wish to help people to discover Ransome. That is why the Arthur Ransome Trust exists. Our goal is a Ransome Centre in the Lake District and our journey includes projects such as a free-to-use app, public exhibitions and re-publishing his books.

Have you enjoyed Ransome’s gift? Does his legacy inspire you? Will you help us to pass it on?

“Wow! Didn’t know about Arthur until today” (R & J, Peterborough)
“Wonderful new way to experience the books” (KT, Tennessee, USA)
“Very cool – liked the lamb pictures” (R, age 7)
(Reactions to Swallows and Amazons, as Seen from Abroad)

Your gift is Ransome’s future.
