Walking in Cumbria's Eden Valley

Walking in Cumbria's Eden Valley

by: Vivienne Crow
If Cumbria's beautiful Eden Valley were anywhere but right next to the Lake District, it would be full of tourists. As it is though, few venture this far from the popular National Park, leaving this idyllic walking area largely to the locals. This guidebook describes a wide variety of routes from the source of the River Eden, high in the wild Pennines, through charming, undulating countryside and pretty red sandstone villages, right up to the open expanses of the Solway marshes on the Scottish border. It includes several walks within the extended boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

This full colour guidebook contains 30 routes from 4 to 15 miles in length, graded 1 to 5 for difficulty, suitable for year-round walking. Some are linear routes linking with the Settle Carlisle railway line. Comprehensive route descriptions are provided together with Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Landranger map extracts and many beautiful photographs to inspire you. The guide is also packed with information about local history which adds immensely to the enjoyment of the walks.
