Walk Ambleside, Rydal and Grasmere

Walk Ambleside, Rydal and Grasmere

by: Bill Birkett
Walk Ambleside, Rydal and Grasmere is a practical walking guidebook describing twenty walks in the Lake District around and above Ambleside, Waterhead, Rydal and Grasmere including all the classic high tops, the low fells and easy valley walks around lake, wood, waterfall and tarn.

Running as one continuous valley, set deep amongst the fells, the wooded and lake filled vales of Grasmere, Rydal and Ambleside twist south and eastwards from Dunmail Pass in the north to Lake Windermere's Waterhead in the south. They travel an area of intense, breath-taking beauty and are known and celebrated worldwide for their association with William Wordsworth and the Lake's poets.

Each walk is presented on a double page spread with clear route description, a detailed coloured sketch map based upon Ordnance Survey data, and inspirational coloured photographs. There is a small panel for each walk giving length, time, difficulty, start and finish locations, OS Explorer map sheet number and hostelries. Bill Birkett is a prize winning author and photographer synonymous with outdoor life in the Lake District. The book is printed locally in Bowness, so a purchase supports the local economy.
