9780007389919: Lake District (Collins Rambler's Guides:)

This comprehensive guide to Lake District walks is produced in association with the Rambler’s Association. This updated guide combines detailed route descriptions, maps and photographs with information on the local history and wildlife.

Among the most spectacular landscapes in Britain, the Lake District offers a unique combination of crag and café, of ice-climb and ice-cream shop, or of the slippery gill and the hollyhocks of the cottage garden. It is this that makes the Lake District the perfect place for a walk on the wild – and yet civilised – side.

The introduction gives information about the topography, geology and history of the area, and describes the flora and fauna inhabiting it.
•The main section of the book comprises 30 walks, suitable for all abilities, from young children to experienced walkers. Each walk has a key illustrating principal features, such as level of difficulty and type of terrain, a route profile indicating altitude and distances, as well as a fact file summarising useful information, such as start and finish points, duration, safety advice and points of interest.
•Illustrated with colour maps from leading authority, Harveys, each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. The text gives the history of the main landmarks along the way and information about the natural history of the area, and is accompanied by stunning colour photographs.
