Settle to Carlisle Way

Settle to Carlisle Way

by: Vivienne Crow
The Settle to Carlisle Way is a recently developed route that runs from station to station, mostly within sight of the famous railway. It runs for 97 miles (156km), starting from Settle and soon enjoying great views of the Three Peaks as it progresses through the Yorkshire Dales National Park, past the Ribblehead Viaduct and over Blea Moor tunnel. Entering Cumbria via lonely Mallerstang, the Way passes beneath Wild Boar Fell and descends gently through lovely valley of the River Eden. Here it passes Long Meg and her Daughters stone circle and moves on to Armathwaite, ending in the historic border city of Carlisle.
This guidebook contains all that a walker needs to plan and enjoy their holiday walking the Settle to Carlisle Way. There are detailed route descriptions supported by a map of the entire route in 5 drop down panels at a scale of 1:115,000. Background information on the railway, geology and scenery is provided as well as wildlife information supported by superb photographs. Practical information includes details of public transport, when to go, accommodation and facilities and travel planning. The guide is lavishly illustrated with 85 colour photographs.
The Rucksack Readers guidebooks have a unique format in that they are spiral bound at the top allowing every page to be opened flat. The additional clever feature is a drop-down route map which allows any page plus the map to be displayed together for convenience on the trail. The book is printed on paper treated with waterproof varnish that withstands the wet plus the map and book covers have a matt laminate on both sides.

The Hardy Way

The Hardy Way

by: Margaret Marande
The Hardy Way is the first long distance path in Great Britain to be linked with the works of a great writer. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) set most of his novels and many poems in Wessex, once an ancient kingdom of southern England. The heart of Hardy's Wessex is Dorset and the Hardy Way is a journey through some of the most unspoilt parts of this beautiful county, extending from the coast then inland to the timeless Cranborne Chase on the Wiltshire border.
The Way begins at Hardy's birthplace and its circuit ends over 200 miles later in the nearby churchyard where his heart lies buried. En route there is a wealth of interest in history, wildlife, landscape and literature.
The walk can be divided into sections for those who prefer short walks, but for the long distance walker here is a challenge to add to the existing long distance paths, this time with the added dimension of commentary written by one of the masters of English literature. This book will appeal to all walkers and to Hardy's admirers everywhere, including those who come from the USA, Australasia, Japan and other places far distant from this English rural idyll.
This 200 page illustrated guide provides a wealth of literary and historical information in addition to very detailed directions and discussion of points of interest along this lovely route.
