Settle to Carlisle Way

Settle to Carlisle Way

Settle to Carlisle Way

by: Vivienne Crow
The Settle to Carlisle Way is a recently developed route that runs from station to station, mostly within sight of the famous railway. It runs for 97 miles (156km), starting from Settle and soon enjoying great views of the Three Peaks as it progresses through the Yorkshire Dales National Park, past the Ribblehead Viaduct and over Blea Moor tunnel. Entering Cumbria via lonely Mallerstang, the Way passes beneath Wild Boar Fell and descends gently through lovely valley of the River Eden. Here it passes Long Meg and her Daughters stone circle and moves on to Armathwaite, ending in the historic border city of Carlisle.

This guidebook contains all that a walker needs to plan and enjoy their holiday walking the Settle to Carlisle Way. There are detailed route descriptions supported by a map of the entire route in 5 drop down panels at a scale of 1:115,000. Background information on the railway, geology and scenery is provided as well as wildlife information supported by superb photographs. Practical information includes details of public transport, when to go, accommodation and facilities and travel planning. The guide is lavishly illustrated with 85 colour photographs.

The Rucksack Readers guidebooks have a unique format in that they are spiral bound at the top allowing every page to be opened flat. The additional clever feature is a drop-down route map which allows any page plus the map to be displayed together for convenience on the trail. The book is printed on paper treated with waterproof varnish that withstands the wet plus the map and book covers have a matt laminate on both sides.
