About the Author
Vivienne Crow is a freelance writer and photographer with a passion for the outdoors. A journalist since 1990, she abandoned the constraints of a desk job on regional newspapers in 2001 to go travelling in Asia and New Zealand. On her return, she decided to focus on the activities she loves the most - hill-walking, writing, travelling and photography. Her first experience of long-distance walking was on the Dorset and south Devon sections of the South West Coast Path as a teenager celebrating the end of her A-Levels. Since then, she has enjoyed dozens of backpacking trips, including Wainwright's Coast to Coast, the Southern Upland Way and most of the rest of the South West Coast Path. Based in Cumbria since 1996, Vivienne has written several books on the county, mostly walking guides. Her outdoor features regularly appear in magazines such as TGO, Lakeland Walker, Cumbria and The Lakes, and she has popular walking columns in several newspapers in the north of England. In addition, she works for conservation and tourism bodies such as Scottish Natural Heritage, the North Pennines AONB and the Eden Rivers Trust, researching and writing leaflets and interpretation panels. In 2010, she won the 'Best Guidebook' and 'Best Outdoor Feature' categories in the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild's Awards for Excellence. Vivienne's book 'Walking in Cumbria's Eden Valley' was shortlisted for the Lakeland Book of the Year Award in 2012.

The introductory sections of the guide provide the usual advice on fitness, navigation, terrain, responsible walking, travel planning and the like, but also includes an excellent history of the Settle to Carlisle Railway and good sections on the geology and wildlife of the region. The remainder of the guide is mainly devoted to a detailed route description of the 97 miles of trail from Settle to Carlisle (places and features of interest are given in highlighted "boxes" in the relevant sections of the walk, with a concise description of the historic border town of Carlisle featuring at the end of the guide). An accurate description of the route is necessary as the trail is not waymarked in its own right as the "Settle to Carlisle Way", although all of the route is along public rights of way, following a mixture of waymarked footpaths and bridleways, as well as some miles of quiet country roads. This reviewer has, as yet, not walked the route, and so it is impossible to say how accurate and clear the description is, but Viv Crow's text certainly reads well, and, if other RR publications are anything to go by, the description should be easy to follow (that in RR's Mary Queen of Scots Way, published in early 2012, is excellent).Read more ›
