Number of varied walks around The Lake District
on 15 September 2014
As I have explained in my two other reviews of books in this series, I ordered three of these books as a last minute purchase just prior to an eleven night holiday in the Lake District. I am so glad that I did. As well as this book I also purchased Woodland Walks and Pub Walks.
The books contain good guides, lovely photos and some very interesting facts. They are also a good pocket size.
We did three walks from this particular book, Gosforth, Catbells and Carrock Fell. All three walks are very different and from completely different areas in The Lakes. The Carrock Fell walk took us to a very remote area to the North of Keswick and we had to climb 660 metres to the top. The Catbells walk was a gentle walk around the beautiful Derwent Water.
The walks are in the region of 4 to 5 1/2 miles each and can be done in either a morning or afternoon. Each walk has a recommendation of a pub to visit afterwards. This was a little hit and miss as only the Swinside Inn after the Catbells walk was actually open at lunchtime. The other two recommendations were closed at this time. Also the parking area for the Catbells walk was hard to locate. However, these are minor quibbles.
We are looking forward to going back soon to complete some of the others.
