Lake District Literary Walks - Top 10

Lake District Literary Walks - Top 10

by: Steve Goodier
The Lake District has a long history of literary residents, some native to the area and others who moved here in later life. Many of them also explored the area on foot and were bewitched by its timeless beauty. Two such residents were William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and the walks in this guide have links to their lives.

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 1:25,000 mapping. There are also fascinating facts about places along the way.

The themes and locations of the ten circular routes are:
Wordsworth's Birthplace, around Cockermouth - 3 miles
School Days, around Hawkeshead - 4 miles
