New on UK bookshelves this week is another welcome addition to the already hugely popular Top 10 Walks series for the Lake District. Ridge Walks, by well known outdoor author Carl Rogers, is the eleventh book in the award-winning, pocket size, themed walks series for the Lake District National Park.
This beautifully illustrated little volume features a balanced mix of easy, grassy ridges and rounds — such as the Fairfield Horseshoe or the Littledale Round — and classic scrambles on the more extreme fell-top ridges such as Striding Edge and Sharp Edge. There really is something here to delight everyone.
The book features clear, easy to follow numbered directions and fascinating facts about places of interest along the way.
With enhanced OS mapping and stunning professional photography throughout, including some eye-catching two page panoramas, the book is a desirable object in its own right. Add to that the book’s handy, lightweight, pocket size and it’s another instant classic.
