This book describes 35 quality outings in the mountains of the English Lake District. The walks, which all visit at least one 'Wainwright' summit, have been specifically chosen to appeal particularly to baby boomers and others who prefer to travel at a leisurely pace on straightforward routes which avoid more challenging and demanding situations. The walks described are between three and ten miles long and visit a god mix of both higher and lower tops spread across the National Park. All follow interesting routes which provide the easiest walking and keep well away from exposed positions, excessively steep or rough ground, and other awkward bits.
Peter Bowker first walked and photographed the Lakeland hills on trips during his schooldays in Lancaster almost fifty years ago, and has continued to do so ever since, always with an ever increasing appreciation of their special qualities. A career in Universities took him to Salford, Newcastle and Aberdeen and he has recently retired to South Lakeland, back to within sight of the fells.
