Another great guide from Rucksack Readers packed with information and easy to read descriptions and maps and as always "rain proof"!
With two geologists on our team we are always impressed with walking guides that give geological information about the terrain you are about to walk over and our farmer was also impressed by the Herdwick Sheep page, especially how to count them?
Even Eric Robson, Chairman of Cumbria Tourism and broadcaster has got in on the action. He says
"if there's one walk that captures the sheer variety of the Lakeland landscape, this is it... If you're new to long-distance walking, this is the perfect introduction."
The guide gives four alternative route breakdowns for you to complete the walk in 5, 6, 7 or 10 days which is very useful with lots of photos and diagrammatic images.
As with all Rucksack Readers guides the Cumbria Way has travel, accommodation and general info for each section.
Very good bus route, rail route and ferry map on page 7! Bus numbers very useful.
We look forward to reviewing it out in the field soon but very good so far!
