Northern Eye BooksWalking, scrambling and outdoors books for Wales and Northwest England
NORTHERN EYE BOOKS are Cheshire-based independent regional publishers of outdoor, climbing, scrambling and walking books covering Wales and North West England.
Northern Eye Books was set up as a limited company in June 2005 by a small group of seasoned walkers, writers, photographers, and graphic designers to publish a range of exciting, quality-led, regional outdoor books and guides.
Our aim is to design and produce innovative regional books to the highest national and international standards. Excellent sales and positive feedback from readers and bookshops suggest they are enjoyed by active and armchair walkers alike. Excellence in concept, content and design is our watchword.
We believe in good writing, good structure, good design and attractive covers. Our walking and outdoor books feature carefully selected routes, easy to follow walking directions, clear maps and fascinating information about places of interest along the way. Our books are also attractively and realistically priced. All of which makes for great books that are a pleasure to read.
We specialise in walking, climbing, scrambling, hillwalking, countryside and outdoor leisure titles. Northern Eye Books also publish new editions of classic mountain, countryside and walking books, with redesigned covers, revised layouts, and new and archive photographs for added interest.
We also create books to suit your needs, either on commission or in partnership.

Over the last ten years he has combined his interests in writing, publishing, walking and the outdoors to develop a series of popular local books published under the Mara Books imprint.
