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 Eden Way
The Eden Way is the third book in the Rivers Trilogy following on from the Swale Way and the Yoredale Way.
The Eden Way begins at the coast and the Solway Firth, seeking out the River Eden as it meets the sea. It then follows the river through Carlisle and Appleby, beneath the slopes of the Pennine hills, to Kirkby Stephen and then up to the spring which gives it life, on the Mallerstang ridge, before dropping down to Garsdale Head.
The guide book is currently in the writing stage, with an expected publication date of May 2018.
The Nidderdale Way
The Nidderdale Way is one of the hidden gems of Yorkshire’s long distance paths. 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 idea stage, with a view to publication later in 2018.
The Westmorland Way
The Westmorland Way explores the lost county of the same name, which was swallowed by Cumbria in the great county reshuffle of 1974. 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. It is hoped that this will become the first of three walks exploring the old counties of Westmorland and Cumberland and the area of Furness that formed Cumbria.
The guide book is currently in the idea stage, with hopes to publish in 2018.
