Top 10 Walks: Lake District: Walks to Waterfalls




This attractive pocket size book features ten easy, short circular walks to the most amazing Lake District waterfalls.

The dramatic waterfalls of the Lake District are mostly a by-product of the last Ice Age — the awesome result of the ancient interplay of ice and rock. Given perpetual life by the region’s high rainfall, they come thundering down from the fells in a variety of forms.

No two are the same. Many carry the name ‘force’—from the old Norse foss simply meaning ‘waterfall’—a remnant of the times when Norsemen dominated these uplands. Unmissable!



One of ten books in the new Top 10 Walks: Lake District series.

This attractive and cleverly structured guidebook gives walkers the ten best walks to Cumbria’s finest waterfalls, cataracts and forces in a popular pocketable format.

With clear information, an overview and introduction for each walk, expertly written numbered directions, Ordnance Survey maps, superb, eye-grabbing panoramic photographs, and interpretation of points of interest along the way, these guides set a new standard in clarity, appeal and ease-of-use.
