Liz Andrew - The Lake District (40 Favourite Walks) (New Softback)
These forty walks in England's glorious Lake District will take you to a range of lakes, peaks, rivers, tarns and waterfalls and introduce you to the haunts of many of the writers and poets who have loved and celebrated the area and made it such a strong cultural as well as natural attraction.
Each walk has its own distinctive mood and character and is easily accomplished in an afternoon or in a long summer evening. None of them scale the highest mountains but they will take you to many lakeshores and several of the lower peaks, which regardless of their height, provide immense views and the satisfaction of reaching a summit.
The 40 moderate walks in this collection highlight the very best the area has to offer in a handy pocket-sized guide.

"This is written by someone who really loves and knows the Lake District and wants to share it with her readers. The book is somehow friendly, it feels like a companion. Its main intention is to guide us round the routes so we neither get lost nor in a hopeless dither.
However, it also includes information and observation - “The path emerges from the wood at Geordie’s Crag, where nets used to be strung across the lake to catch a local freshwater whitefish, the schelly, which is now a protected species. The little bays that follow feel almost coastal - though without the seaweed.”
Most walks span two pages and include a clear, simple map, a well-reproduced photo and a synopsis of the walk including distance, time, and OS map number. 40 walks! What a treat!" - Amazon Review.
"This guide book is split into the main regions of the Lake District, and contains 40 walks which are inspiring and are the epitome of Cumbrian culture. We’ve tried many of the walks, being new to the hiking scene, as they’re not all tricky climbs, but do all promise rewarding rambles in our beautiful county. We particularly enjoyed the Aira Force walk, the Wray Castle visit and exploration of the Bowder Stone and the local area. The beauty of these walks is that they’re suited for all abilities and ages." - Cumbria Guru.
