November News: New guidebooks | Cicerone Podcast | Live Events | offers

Hello everyone,

We hope you are keeping safe and well. We appreciate how difficult it sometimes may feel not to have the freedom to explore, but by all accounts there may be a chink of light at the end of the tunnel some time during 2021. We hope so. Now is the time for planning!

We have plenty of material to get your plans started, and to entertain you in the meantime, including our new podcast and live events.

Our next live event will be on 1st December with Alan Hinkes, so put 7.00pm on 1st December in your diary now.

There are plenty of new titles on the way, including the final two in the series of eight new style Fellranger guides to be published In February. Take a look at the list of books for pre-ordering below which will arrive in January and February.

For further reading, recent articles include a spotlight on Stanfords – the best known and loved map and travel store, a 'hidden gem' of a walk in the North Wessex Downs, a sample scramble in the Lake District, a long-distance walk around Italy's Lake Como, and an offer from Rohan.

Have a great week,

Christmas ordering

Official Royal Mail last post dates for Christmas are: 2nd Class- Friday 18th December, 1st Class - Monday 21st December

All web orders intended for Christmas will need to be placed by the end of Tuesday 15th December. While our warehouse will be able to meet the Royal Mail last post dates, it has become apparent that Royal Mail have been under pressure recently to deliver within normal timescales, due to Covid 19-related staff shortages. Our advice is to shop early for Christmas!

New titles and books now available to preorder

For Lake District fell walkers there are two 'new style' Fellranger guidebooks, Keswick and Buttermere now published, and the final two in this fantastic series of eight guides will be published in February. These will help you explore the fells around Coniston and Borrowdale, and are available to pre-order now.

We're really excited about the following books which will be publishing soon. You can pre-order them now to get them as soon as they arrive.
