This is the legendary A. Wainwright's guide to his selection of 56 'foothills' in Lakeland, brilliantly revised and updated by Chris Jesty. The outings described here with typical eloquence and humour were chosen by Wainwright with a particular readership in mind: 'those walkers who, because of age or infirmity, must be content with milder expeditions on lesser fells.' This guide is packed with gems of outstanding beauty which you don't have to be super-fit to enjoy: Orrest Head, where Wainwright's love affair with the Lake District began; Scout Scar, 'a pleasure every step of the way'; Beacon Fell, 'the epitome of that appeals to fellwalkers'; and many, many others. All the walks fall within the boundaries of the National Park. In the second edition, the main routes are picked out in red for greater visibility, and parking information is given where possible.

'I don't know any tract of land in which in so narrow a compass may be found an equal variety of sublime and beautiful features'. So said the poet Wordsworth of England's Lake District, an area as rich in cultural associations as it is in beautiful scenery. Hunter Davies, who has spent every summer in the Lake District for nearly half a century, takes the reader on an engaging, informative and affectionate tour of the lakes, fells, traditions, denizens and history of England's most popular tourist destination. From the first discovery of Lakeland as a tourist destination in the 18th century, to the tale of the Maid of Buttermere, to the poet Coleridge's ascent of Scafell Pike in 1802, to such enduring local traditions as Cumberland wrestling and hound trailing, Hunter Davies brings England's Lake District memorably and informatively to life.

Rock Trails Lakeland

This book explains to the hillwalker, in easy to understand but accurate terms, how geology has shaped the landscape of the Cumbrian Lakeland. A selection of fifteen guided walks are used to illustrate this in terms of what can be seen on the ground. Divided into two parts, Paul describes the view out over the fells and back through time, charting the formation of the Cumbrian Lake District. Factors such as undersea sedimentation, tectonic collisions which heaved up the land, great flows of lava and explosive eruptions which mixed and reformed old rock, catastrophic caldera collapses, freeze/thaw creation of rocky tors, the pointed tops of pikes carved by the flowing glaciers and the human influence of mining and tourism have all contributed to shape the landscape.The second half of the book describes fifteen walks ranging from easy to challenging, with revealing views of the geology.
