Tops of the North
Three Shire Head to Carlisle
A post-Wainwright walking challenge.
Boardman Tasker Prize shortlisted author Graham Wilson has devised a new, high-level circular route based on the county tops (old and new) of northern England. Volume I tackles the western reaches, beginning at Three Shire Head near Buxton and ending at Carlisle. On the way, he considers Pendle witches and nightmare kitchens, hen harriers and Arthur Ransome, the art of shin kicking and the nature of Northernness. A stimulating experience, even for those who never get out of their armchairs. Volume II, will cover the second half of the walk.
