Top 10 Walks: Lake District: Lakeside Walks



This popular pocket size book will take you on ten short circular walks to the finest lakeside paths in the Lake District.

Lakeland’s characteristic lakes and meres are a legacy of the last Ice Age when vast ice sheets scoured out deep U-shaped valleys and upland combes. Today, sixteen main lakes and scores of smaller tarns punctuate the National Park.

They include England’s longest lake (Windermere: 10½ miles long), and its deepest lake (Wast Water: 243 feet deep). Only Windermere, Derwent Water, Coniston Water and Ullswater have regular steamer and ferry services, yet every lake features dramatic waterside walks that will stay in your memory forever.



One of ten books in the new Top 10 Walks: Lake District series.

This attractive and cleverly structured guidebook gives walkers the ten finest routes around or beside the Lake District’s best-known lakes, in a popular pocketable format.

With clear information, an overview and introduction for each walk, expertly written numbered directions, Ordnance Survey maps, superb, eye-grabbing panoramic photographs, and interpretation of points of interest along the way, these guides set a new standard in clarity, appeal and ease-of-use.

What they say …

“Despite their diminutive pocket-size, these two volumes certainly pack a lot of detail. Each features 10 circular, thematic walks in the Lakes and includes impressive colour photos and maps. A smart and compact series.”
