The Southern Lakes

40 Shorter Walks from the Easy to the Adventurous

Dominic North

GBP 6.99

The Lake District is England’s pre-eminent National Park. Nowhere else is the pattern of mountain, wood and water so compactly and harmoniously arranged. Nowhere else is so artfully entwined within a network of paths or cast in raw beauty. As a place to explore on foot it is unique.

In the second of a two-book series exploring the Lake District, Dominic North presents 40 shorter walks – most under 10km – traversing the history and landscape of the Southern Lakes. These inspirational and varied circular routes capture the diverse moods around Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere, the Langdales, Coniston, and a trio of western valleys – Wasdale, Eskdale and the Duddon Valley – offering a fresh look at old friends, overlooked corners and new places to explore. The perfect companion, whether beginning or completing a Lake District education.
