Walking Books Lakeland Pack 2

The 25 classic walks arrived on my desk in a glossy, robust box with tempting images of the adventures ahead.


The rear of the box lists the series 25 durable, weather-proof walking cards and their grades from Easy (7), through Moderate (12) and Difficult  (2) to Strenuous (3)

There is a clear indication of the retail price at £14.95 together with other packs available in the series but no reference to the useful booklet or waterproof map case that also accompanies the route cards. The waterproof map case is initially folded within the box.

Don't try and straighten it by inserting a card as it just bends the card!

Each route card is packed with information including extracts from the Ordnance Survey 1:25 000 Leisure Maps for the area, grade, distance, height gain & profile, approx time to walk, terrain / surface (which we like a lot!) and very good route description.

We'll be doing a field test on Route 07 Dalemain and Dacre before the end of Jan 2012 and let you know how we get on...
