'Note - compass bearings must be taken at the first sign of mist, not after the mist has formed'. The Lake District is the most popular destination for lovers of the British countryside. Mixing historical detail with quaint reminders of a simpler age this book is a must for anyone that has spent time wandering the fells or exploring the towns of the Lake District. With over 50 maps and photographs and even a glossary of Lakelands terms the readers is able to build up a portrait of a forgotten age. 'The Grasmere Sports, the event of the season, take place about the middle of August. Wrestling is perhaps the chief attraction, but in popularity it is closely run by the 'Guides Race' and the 'Hound Trail'. The first selection of eight titles includes: London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, The Yorkshire Dales and North Cornwall. Each title has a newly-written introduction from a locally-known author.show more
