The Lake District offers some of the best walking in the British Isles, and contained within this book are 30 of the best low-level walks within the Lake District. This is an area that is justly famed for its magnificent scenery: from serene lakes and wooded valleys to spectacular hills and hidden tarns. But you don’t have to climb its highest mountains to appreciate this beauty; some of the region’s best walking can be enjoyed in the valleys and on the low fells.
Those who are new to walking in this much beloved corner of England will find gentle strolls, such as the circuit of Buttermere, as well as walks that provide a straight forward introduction to the low fells, such as High Rigg.
With her intimate knowledge of the National Park, Vivienne Crow knows just where to go to experience the best of the Lake District. In this book, she guides walkers to well-known beauty spots as well as some hidden gems – with background information on both the human and natural history adding to the experience.

The map extracts used in this book are from the Ordnance Survey’s 1:50,000 Landranger series enlarged to 1:40,000 scale for maximum clarity. They are meant as a guide only and walkers are advised to purchase the relevant map(s) – and know how to navigate using them. The whole area is covered by sheets 89, 90, 96 and 97. The OS 1:25,000 Explorer series provides greater detail, showing field boundaries as well as access land. To complete all the walks in this guide using Explorer maps, you’ll need sheets OL4, OL5, OL6 and OL7.
Harvey publishes an excellent series of Superwalker XT25 maps at the 1:25,000 scale. Its four Lake District maps cover most of the National Park.
