The thirty two walks in this book vary considerably in length and effort required. All are circular and start and finish at a recommended parking area. Interesting features along the route are described and the underlying intention of the author is to suggest that Lakeland walking can be undertaken as a relatively relaxing pastime, never hesitating to pause for refreshment or photography or to take time to gaze at the superb views which are such a feature of each and every walk in the book. Clear sketch maps and excellent photographs illustrate this popular book.
