Pocket Pub Walks – The Lake District

Jean Patefield


Pocket size book with routes for 15 different pub walks in the Lake District.

The routes in this book give the walker the chance to experience the Lake District at its very best with walks beside Aira Beck to the breath-taking falls of Aira Force and High Force, along the Cald Beck to the waterfalls at the Howk; around Swindside with its magnificent scenery, through the delightful Grizedale Forest to the pretty cascades of the Force Falls; and up Tarn Hows with its dramatic views of the surrounding countryside.

Along the way there are many interesting places to see including the home of William Wordsworth in Grasmere, the village of Near Sawrey where Beatrix Potter bought her first Lakeland property, and the Roman bath house at Ravenglass.

The book’s handy size fits neatly into a pocket and, in addition to the clear, numbered route instructions, each walk section also includes a matching numbered map, details of distance and terrain, information on how to get to the start, places of interest along the way and, most importantly, a recommended pub serving good food.
