William Wordsworth was an avid walker, composing and seeking inspiration on regular and often lengthy walks around his beloved Lake District. Here are twenty walks connected to his life and work, allowing you to follow in the Lakeland laureate's footsteps by the lakes and tarns, rivers and valleys he celebrated in verse.
Fully set out with maps, clear directions, advice on car parking and refreshment suggestions, the walks are also illustrated with over sixty colour photographs. Ranging from two to twelve miles in length, the routes are mostly short and relatively easy. Most are circular, and the few linear walks have details of how to return to the starting point by bus or boat.
Written by authors Norman and Jean Buckley, who also wrote Walking with Beatrix Potter to great acclaim. Their newest publication is likely to receive a similar reception by fans of Wordsworth and the Lakes. - Grange Now!
