Walking Close To Cartmel (South Lakes)

Walking Close To Cartmel (South Lakes)

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

This guide describes ten varied and interesting circular walks in the southern Lake District close to Cartmel, Grange-over-Sands and the southern tip of Lake Windermere in the National Park. The village of Cartmel grew around the Augustinian priory which had been established here in 1189. The priory gatehouse, which has had several uses still survives.
