A guidebook to the Cumbria Way, a 73-mile long distance path through the heart of the English Lake District from Ulverston to Carlisle. The route is largely low-level, and accessible to new trekkers, but this guide offers alternative mountain days to climb some of the famous fells en route. The guide divides the route into 5 stages of between 12 and 16 miles, but there is plenty of opportunity to plan your itinerary for a more easy-going 7 to 8 days. The Lake District is a walkers paradise, and there is no better way to experience the fells, lakes and woodlands of the Lake District than by trekking through their midst. This guidebook also provides useful information for every stage, from accommodation to available facilities en route, as well as an annotated OS map and details on points of interest. The result is a guidebook that enhances a walk on the Cumbria Way, as well as providing the walker with the tools to complete the trek.

This guidebook describes 30 low-level day walks in the valleys, beside the lakes and on the low fells of the Lake District, suitable for walkers of all abilities. Each route is illustrated with OS map extracts, and range from 7 to 17km in length, with no technical difficulties over terrain from wide constructed trails to narrow paths on open fell. Walkers who know the Lakes well may have missed some of the lower gems covered here from delightful wooded glades and sparkling tarns hidden in green folds on the hillside to tumultuous waterfalls and glacier-carved valleys towered over by craggy mountains, this guidebook aims to seek out the best lower level walks the Lake District have to offer. Located across the whole of the Lake District, the walks are divided into five sections: South Lakes (Windermere, Coniston, Duddon and the south), Central Lakes (Ambleside, Langdale, Grasmere and Thirlmere), Western Valleys (Eskdale, Wasdale and the Buttermere area), North Lakes (Keswick, Borrowdale and Derwentwater) and Eastern Lakes (Ullswater and Patterdale).

The Northern Fells include the rolling Caldbeck and Uldale Fells ''Č" 'serene and restful, a perfect sanctuary for birds and animals and fell-walkers who prefer to be away from the crowds'; Skiddaw ''Č" 'an affable, friendly giant'; majestic Blencathra ''Č" 'the mountaineer's mountain'; Latrigg ''Č" the favourite of visitors to Keswick ''Č" and many more. They offer the walker excellent tramping and exhilarating freedom to wander at will.This second edition of The Northern Fells has been brilliantly revised by Chris Jesty, a trained cartographer who worked with Wainwright on some of the maps in his later large-format guides. All footpaths have been rewalked, all routes checked, all maps and text updated. Paths and routes have been picked out in red to make them easier to follow, and parking information has been added. This new edition of the classic walking guide is Wainwright for the 21st century.

Lakeland Fellranger guidebook covering 28 summits in the Central Fells of the Lake District, including a variety of ascents in the high ground between Great Langdale and Keswick. The area is flanked to the west by Stake Pass, Langstrath, Borrowdale and Derwentwater, and to the east by Grasmere, Dunmail Raise and Thirlmere. Each of the 28 fells has a dedicated chapter describing a plethora of walking routes of differing characters and difficulties (from wide bridleways up to easy scrambles), which can easily be combined to make ascents, descents, traverses or ridge routes. The chapter begins with a customised Harvey map that illustrates the routes, and shows ridge connections to neighbouring fells to assist in the planning of extended walks. In many instances pen and ink drawn diagrams show the routes from a given perspective to assist visualisation. The guidebook is fully illustrated throughout with clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs. The Central Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Together they provide a comprehensive guide to explore and enjoy the fells of the Lake District, with a selection of routes up more than 220 hills.

The Cumbria Coastal Way is a continuous 298km (182 mile) walking route from north Lancashire towards the Scottish border, and links a number of gems of landscape, wildlife, archaeology and history that are found on this often little-known coastline. Starting at Silverdale, on Morecambe Bay, and edging the coast up towards Gretna, the coastal way can be walked in its entirety (10-14 days), or in sections, by walkers of all ages and abilities. Much of the route-finding is easy, and the route, which rarely climbs higher than 100m above sea level, has been designed to link with public transport. This is a totally new edition of the guidebook written by two walkers who regularly explore Cumbria's diverse coast.
