Top 10 Walks: Lake District: Woodland Walks



This lovely little book will take you on ten short circular walks through the finest woods and forests in the Lake District

People seem to be drawn to trees, be they part of a landscape that has existed for centuries or planted in more modern times. There is something special about being in among their sturdy trunks, surrounded by a rich understorey with the sunlight piercing the canopy high above.

In the Lake District, there is a huge variety of woodland — and no matter what their origins, what tree types grow there or how they have been managed, that extraordinary atmosphere never fails to nourish the soul.



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


This attractive and cleverly structured guidebook gives walkers the ten best walks through Cumbria’s loveliest woodlands 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.
