I love fell walking, particularly in the Lake District and have a number of books I have used to assist me in various walks. I received this book which is currently just under £12 on Amazon and I must say, I am very impressed. The first thing to note is it's approximately A5 size but is quite heavy because of the 350 pages in it. So this isn't a guide to shove in your pocket but one to carry in your rucksack. The exterior of the book is plastic and although it gives it a cheap appearance, it's obviously more hard-wearing than digging out a paperback which is likely to be ripped.
Although tempted to dig straight into a few walks I intend to do, I found it worthwhile reading the introduction pages as it explains how the book is set out. This is where the book separates itself from others in that there is a map of all the walk starting points, diagrammatical panoramic indications of the peaks from each direction, a map of fell mosaics and, this pleased me a lot, a list of all the starting points and what type of car park was there. This may sound daft but I got caught out attempting to park in a car park earlier on this year which demanded £7 for a whole day, luckily I found a free lay-by nearby.
The specific walk chapters are really well put together, giving a Wainwright-style drawing of the relevant peak and showing the various routes which are all explained. I must confess being slightly puzzled initially with the various route suggestions and how they fit together, this maybe my tired brain at the time but after 5 minutes I understood how it worked.Read more ›
