50 Walks in the Lake District

50 Walks in the Lake District

updated by: Jon Sparks and Vivienne Crow
The Lake District occupies most of central, southern and western Cumbria, one of England's largest counties. At its heart is a series of valleys (dales) cutting through an uplifted button of mountains (fells). This is a glaciated landscape where retreating ice more than 15,000 years ago scooped deep hollows in the valley floors. Filled by becks and rivers the hollows became the lakes we know today. Much of the region forms England's largest National Park.

This popular guide book explores some of the best of the Lake District. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions, including detailed full colour sketch maps, for every walk. Information on what to look out for during the walk and places to eat and drink is provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments. There are some full page colour photographs of locations visted on some of the walks.
