5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent new Lake District guide, 6 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Great Mountain Days in the Lake District: 50 Classic Routes Exploring the Lakeland Fells (Paperback)
This is a well written and illustrated selective guide to walking in the English Lake District. It is well produced, with good quality of photographs and printing. The accurate maps from Harvey's are a significant strength-it's good to get the route description and the detailed map side by side. The route profiles are also helpful. The guide is a modern one taking advantage of the potential from modern digital maps.

I have been walking the fells for about the last thirty years. I have enjoyed using earlier guide books such as Poucher, Wainwright and Bob Allen. Also the FRCC's guide.

It's great to be able to welcome a new guide, that is well written, with a sensible selection of walks, and which adds to what has gone before by taking full advantage of modern production methods.

The Fells remain...and this book will get you wanting to get out amongst them.

I would recommend it as a good introduction for newcomers to Lakeland walking, and as a worthwhile addition to the library of experienced walkers.

I think if you've been walking on these fells for 30 years you must be lost, and very very hungry. Aren't your boots worn out yet? Is the cat missing you? Is Michelle missing you? You can't've been walking for 30 years - you must have had a break to produce Charlotte. Your readers should be told. Does the gradient ease as you reach the summit?
