Books Info:

Short Walks in Lakeland Book 1: South Lakeland free pdf A guidebook of 60 short walks in the south of the English Lake District, the first of a three-part series covering the whole of Lakeland. This guide divides the South Lake District into four regions: the Central Fells, the area around Coniston Water and Windermere, the Eastern Fells and Dales, and the Limestone Fringe. 60 short walks are described, generally between 4 and 9 miles, enough to pleasantly fill a good half-day, and ideal for day visitors or family walkers. Some longer walks could be split, others combined. It is not a high fell walking guide, although several popular summits are included. Interesting features are pointed out along the way, and the hand-drawn maps include relevant walk details. The combination of detailed description and clear, easy-to-follow maps and evocative sketches makes this book ideal for anyone who wants to explore Lakeland.

About Aileen Evans

Aileen Evans, now retired after a career in teaching and book production, has enjoyed a lifelong love of the outdoors. She has climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America and considers the Isle of Man a favourite which continually draws her to return. She prefers to linger on a walk, allowing time to appreciate views, to enjoy flowers and wildlife, and delve into things of historical interest. Aileen has always enjoyed adventure sports and sampled most, including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing and alpine mountaineering. She still particularly enjoys rock climbing and exploring little-known places away from mainstream tourist areas. Recently, with encouragement from her grandson, she has taken up mountain biking. Some of Aileen's more memorable tours include cross- country ski-backpacking in France, walking across the remote interior of Iceland and a trek to Iceland's North Cape, and completing the Tour of Mont Blanc and the Alpine Pass Route. At home in Lancashire, with her husband, Brian, and collie, Meg, she enjoys her garden, particularly the visiting birds. Brian Evans, now retired after a career in printing and publishing, has enjoyed a lifetime's love of the outdoors. He has climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America, yet always returns to the Lake District, which has a special place in his affections. He prefers to explore out-of-the-way places, preferably with the added attraction of rock, to which he has been addicted since childhood. Brian has always enjoyed adventure sports including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing, skiing and alpine mountaineering. He still particularly enjoys rock climbing in all its forms, from long adventurous climbs where route-finding skills are necessary to single-pitch bolted sports climbs in the Mediterranean sun. Recently, with encouragement from his grandson, he has taken up mountain biking. Some of Brian's most memorable trips include multi-day alpine climbs such as the West face routes of the Dru and the Aiguille Noire- walking across the remote interior of Iceland- ski-backpacking in France- canoeing tumultous alpine rivers- and delving deep underground in the Vercors potholes. At home in Lancashire with his wife, Aileen, and collie, Meg, he enjoys drawing and painting, and planning the next adventurous trip.
