Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.
The Contents are
P004: Introduction (Where to go, when to go, what to see, etc.)
P020: Basics (travel, transport, accommodation, food & drink, and other important touristy stuff, particularly involving mountains, lakes and other outdoor activities!)
P084: Grasmere and the central fells
P110: Coniston Water, Hawkshead and the south
P138: Keswick, Derwent Water and the north
P174: The western fells and valleys
P220: Out of the National Park
P256: Contexts (articles on history, habitats, climbing, etc.)
