Glenthorne was for many years the cherished holiday home of Linton Taylor – a Yorkshire carpet manufacturer and prominent Quaker. In 1961 the house and its grounds were bequeathed to the Society of Friends (Quakers) to be held in trust and used as a place for Quakers and others to come for purposes of religious worship, for rest, for convalescence after illness and for other activities of a charitable nature.

The Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in Northwest England. Famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells) and its associations with the early 19th century writings of William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017.

Quakers Uniting in Publications, begun informally in 1983 by a small group of Quaker publishers and booksellers, is now an international network of over 50 Friends organizations and individuals concerned with the ministry of the written word.
