Description

The Northern Lakes

The first in a two-book series exploring the Lake District, featuring 40 shorter walks, most under 10km, traversing the history and landscape of the Northern Lakes. 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, and nowhere else so draped in raw beauty. As a place to explore on foot, it is unique. Contained within this guide are 40 walks travelling through the remarkable history and landscape of the Northern Lakes, from the environs of Shap in the east to the tip of Ennerdale Water in the west. Along the way find the diverse moods around Haweswater, Ullswater, Thirlmere, Keswick, Borrowdale, Newlands, Buttermere and the Western Lakes.
