A guidebook of 60 short walks in the south of the English Lake District, the first of a three-part series covering the whole of Lakeland. This guide divides the South Lake District into four regions: the Central Fells, the area around Coniston Water and Windermere, the Eastern Fells and Dales, and the Limestone Fringe. 60 short walks are described, generally between 4 and 9 miles, enough to pleasantly fill a good half-day, and ideal for day visitors or family walkers. Some longer walks could be split, others combined. It is not a high fell walking guide, although several popular summits are included. Interesting features are pointed out along the way, and the hand-drawn maps include relevant walk details. The combination of detailed description and clear, easy-to-follow maps and evocative sketches makes this book ideal for anyone who wants to explore Lakeland.

About Author

Aileen and Brian Evans, now both retired, have enjoyed a lifelong love of the outdoors. They have climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America. They have always enjoyed adventure sports and sampled most, including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing and alpine mountaineering. They still particularly enjoy rock climbing and exploring little-known places away from mainstream tourist areas. Recently, with encouragement from their grandson, they have taken up mountain biking. At home in Lancashire, with their collie, Meg, they enjoy gardening, painting and planning their next adventure.
