A guidebook to walking a scenic, seven-day circular route (93 miles) around England's Lake District. The tour gives a flavour of each of the main Lakeland valleys and their different character. The route starts at the railway terminus at Windermere village. Quickly leaving the crowds behind, it passes through Ambleside, Langdale valley, Coniston, Dunnerdale, Eskdale, Wasdale, Ennerdale, Buttermere, Newlands Valley, Keswick, Borrowdale, Grasmere then Ullswater, before returning back to Windermere via the Troutbeck valley. With a flavour of each of the main Lakeland valleys, and time to stop and wonder at their charms, the walk described in this book leads quickly away from the busy tourist centres to the quiet pleasures of the fell country.
