Having watch these episodes as they were broadcast it is fabulous to have my own copy on DVD to watch whenever I want to!

I've started viewing with the Railway walks - not much to do with Wainwright but the most local to me of Bakewell to Buxton.

Having done my Duke of Edinburgh's Gold Award exploration in the Lake District I can enjoy the countryside from my armchair.

I'd wanted this set for Christmas but with my daughter's birthday on 4th January funds were low - so to have the value of all 4 discs together for Easter was great - and less fattening than chocolate!

This is a boxset of the 4 walking series that have been shown on the BBC over the last few years featuring Julia Bradbury. 3 of the series are based on Alfred Wainwrights pictorial guides, 2 concerning the Lake District and one on his now infamous Coast to Coast walk. The 4th series concerns Railway Walks on Railways closed by Dr Beeching in the 60's.

These are excellent series and if you are fan of walking, the Lakes, stunning scenery you will love this boxset and it will give you excellent ideas for future walks to undertake. Some of the Railway walks are spectacular. A brilliant series.

An excellent set of dvd's very well presented by Julia Bradbury. Well worth watching for anyone thinking of completing any of the walks, or indeed anyone who appreciates the magnificent British countryside and its views.

Simply stunning! I had purchased the Wainwright Pictorial Guides previously and thought the DVD box set would be a useful addition. Also as one of the DVDs is the Coast to Coast walk, I thought it would be useful to get a visual idea of what I can expect when I finally do it myself.

The DVDs are fantastic - Julia Bradbury most eloquently describes the scenic beauty along the way and the aerial views of the route are just stunning. Julia visits some interesting places along the way and meets various people, some of whom knew Wainwright.

I am now looking forward to doing some Wainwrights in the Lake District and also the Coast to Coast over the next year or two. I would recommend this DVD box set who enjoy walking in the hills - they will inspire you to get your walking boots on!!

I bought this box set as a Christmas present for my husband, who has spent many years walking in the lakes. We'd watched the series on television and both looked forwards to seeing the Coast to Coast walk which we've completed - in his case, 3 times (so far)
We've spent a number of cold nights snuggled up watching the videos reminiscing, and looking forwards to the better weather when we can get out more.
Love the collection, which follows in the footsteps of the series featuring A.W. himself - highly recommended
