A unique compilation of 25 walks around and alongside a selection of the many water features to be found in this favourite walking area - lakes, tarns, becks, rivers and waterfalls.

Waterside Walks in the Lake District 2nd Edition

  • Ranging from 1 to 16 km, from gentle strolls to more strenuous hikes there are suitable walks for all age groups. Each walk includes information about parking, the length of the walk, a clear map to guide you, the level of difficulty, some very interesting facts of particular relevance and many beautiful colour photographs.

    Discover the Lake District from a whole new perspective! Colin Shelbourn has put together 25 stunning waterside walks for your enjoyment from the abundance of lakes, tarns, becks, rivers and waterfalls in this ever-popular walking region.
    They have a wide-ranging appeal, from walks along the shores of some of the most beautiful lakes to strolls beside rushing rivers and wild waterfalls.
    You can choose from a short stroll to a 16km (10ml) circular walk around the Queen of the Lakes, Derwent Water. Whatever the length or location you choose you'll meet with stunning scenery, a richness of wildlife, and many interesting places to visit, often a welcome distraction from the rudiments of pure walking.
    The colour photographs are magnificent reflecting the beauty of the area through the seasons; the maps are exceptionally clear and easy to read; and the additional fascinating facts add to the enjoyment of each walk leading you along, around and in some cases, even through water.
