From the Back Cover
Produced in co-operation with The Ramblers' association and HARVEY maps, this series covers some of the most popular walking areas in Britain and Ireland, combining detailed route descriptions 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.
