Walking with Wordsworth in the Lake District

Walking with Wordsworth in the Lake District

by: Norman and June Buckley
William Wordsworth was an avid walker, composing and seeking inspiration on regular and often lengthy walks around his beloved Lake District. Here are twenty walks connected to his life and work, allowing you to follow in the Lakeland laureate's footsteps by the lakes and tarns, rivers and valleys he celebrated in verse.
Fully set out with maps, clear directions, advice on car parking and refreshment suggestions, the walks are also illustrated with over sixty colour photographs. Ranging from two to twelve miles in length, the routes are mostly short and relatively easy. Most are circular, an a few linear walks have details of how to return to the starting point by bus or boat.
The walk locations are: Grasmere; Greenhead Gill and Alcock Tarn; Easedale Tarn; Rydal and Grasmere; Ambleside; Loughrigg Tarn; Blea Tarn; Hawkshead; Claife Heights; Thirlmere; Wythburn to Keswick; Keswick; Lodore Falls and Derwent Water; Duddon Valley; Loweswater; Brothers Water and Hartsop; Aira Force; Martindale; Pooley Bridge and Ullswater; Cockermouth and River Derwent.
