The second in the Short Walks in Lakeland trilogy, which also includes guides to South Lakeland (book 1) and West Lakeland (book 3). The guide comprises 57 walks generally between 4 and 8 miles, enough to pleasantly fill a good half-day or leisurely full day, and ideal for day visitors or family walkers. It is not a high fell walking guide, although many worthwhile summits are included. Priority is given to the lower fells and dales, which are as rewarding as their high brethren. Some of the walks are classic and well used. Others seek out lonely miners' tracks or medieval hollow ways which are still green and a joy to walk. Interesting features are pointed out along the way, whilst the specially drawn maps include relevant walk details. The combination of detailed description and clear, easy-to-follow maps and evocative sketches makes this book ideal for anyone who wants to explore the Lakeland.
