Lake District Walks with History - Top 10

Lake District Walks with History - Top 10

by: Vivienne Crow
It may not seem obvious at first but the rich human heritage of the area we now call the Lake District is evident all around us as we walks the fells and dales. From the enigmatic monuments built by prehistoric peoples to the industrial scars left in more modern times, centuries of human habitation have left their mark on this landscape. Keep your eyes and your imagination open and you will come to realise every step you take is through time.

Some of the sites visited, particularly the older ones, are found on the low fells, while others are in the valleys, but each involves a superb walk in a landscape that resonates with the memory of former times.

This little pocket guide is produced in full colour with an emphasis on stunning professional photography. Each route has clear easy-to-follow numbered instructions including all the practical information you require and full colour OS 1:50,000 mapping. There are also fascinating facts about places along the way.
