Walking in Eden

Walking in Eden

by: Ron Scholes
This is the third revised edition of the definitive guide to walking in the Eden Valley, a unique part of Cumbria nestling between Kendal and Carlisle. The walks, both circular and linear, range from 2 to 15 miles and are peppered with fascinating accounts of the history and culture of the area. There is an enormous diversity of landscape in this area still unspoilt by tourism. Walkers can enjoy the rolling limestone uplands with remote farmsteads, where walking is on velvet turf alongside crystal-clear watercourses; high fells and rocky escarpment edges; gentle pastoral countryside dotted with interesting villages, and the eastern fell sides rising to expansive heather-clad moorlands.

Here, you can discover a huge variety of walking opportunities: a 15 mile journey to the valley of the South Tyne, a 12 mile route to Nine Standards Rigg, and an 8 mile ramble along the River Eden through a wooded sandstone gorge. Visit the high plateau of the Cross Fell Range, the historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland, or follow the Eden from Carlisle to the Solway Marshes.

There are forty routes divided into geographic sections. Each route is fully described and includes detailed sketch maps, inspiring photographs and absorbing background information, all adding to the value of this unique guide to walking in the Eden valley.
