We have a few books in the various stages between ‘idea’ and publication. Hopefully this page will whet your appetite for walks you can complete in the future.

If you know of a walk that is in serious need of a guide book, then use the comment form at the bottom of the page. If your walk gets selected you’ll receive a free copy of the book, and a mention!

The Nidderdale Way

It’s a lovely four day walk, based around the River Nidd at the heart of the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). There have been two previous guide books for the walk since it was launched in the early 1980’s, but both are now out of print and quite hard to get hold of, so it seems time to put the walk back on the map!

The guide book is currently in the planning stage, with a view to publication in early 2019.

The Westmorland Way

It runs from Appleby, the old county town, west towards the Cumbria Fells, through Shap, Pooley Bridge, Patterdale, Grasmere, Windermere, Kendal and finally arrives at the coast, at Arnside. Train stations at each end of the walk make it easily accessible and the stunning scenery along the walk have made it a firm favourite over the years. The walk was originally devised by Paul Hannon.

The guide book is now in the research stage, with plans to publish late summer / autumn 2018.

The Furness Way

The Furness Way continues from the end of the Westmorland Way at Arnside and explores the area that used to be referred to as Furness. From Arnside the route heads north around the Lyth Valley and then south, skirting the southern end of the Lake District Fells. It heads north again around Coniston Water and across Dunnerdale to Eskdale and finishes at the little coastal town of Ravenglass. The walk was originally devised by Paul Hannon.

The guide book is currently in the idea stage, with hopes to publish sometime in 2019.

The Cumberland Way

The Cumberland Way was also devised by Paul Hannon and essentially closes the loop on the previous two walks. It runs from Ravenglass, across the Cumbrian mountains to Appleby. Using Wasdale and a path beside Wast Water it crosses the High Stile ridge to arrive in Buttermere before heading to Keswick. A beeline east is then used, beside Ullswater to arrive at Appleby.

The guide book is currently in the idea stage, with hopes to publish sometime in 2019.

Great that you are up revising and producing these guide books again. Over the years we have walked most of the route you are in the process of re writing and they are all superb routes. Keep up the good work. Many thanks Roy Lincoln
