504. Gin, Cake & Rucksacks: A fun-filled tour of Lakeland distillers
Beth Pipe and Karen Guttridge

"How d'you fancy a mad Lakeland distillery tour? "So said hairbrained-ideas factory Beth Pipe to social media pal Karen Guttridge, whom she had never even met!

512. Easy Walks to Lake District Views
Walking in the Lake District is inherently rewarding with magnificent views almost everywhere you go. The best views are not necessarily from the highest mountains. Many excellent views of the lakes and mountains may be reached with easy walks. Indeed the best views of the high mountains come from looking up to them and views of lakes are frequently at their best when looking down on them, after a relatively easy climb. This book features twenty walks to viewpoints throughout the Lake District. They are graded from very easy, to fairly easy and then not as easy. Each has a full description of the route, including a sketch map and points of interest. . . . more
