Walking Weekends Lake District


My latest walking guidebook is now in the shops, after 18 months research and writing. This book features 24 circular walks from 12 villages, with a mountains walk and a low-level walk from each village - ideal for a weekend break.

5p from every copy sold will be donated to the 'Fix the Fells' appeal - and £75 has already been donated! The 'Fix the Fells' appeal raises money to help repair and maintain eroded upland paths in the Lake District, thus ensuring this beautiful landscape is passed on to future generations in good order.
