Taking in some of the most magnificent upland country in England, this guide leads the reader through 150 miles of the Lake District National Park, and has as its central theme the poet William Wordsworth. Starting at his birthplace in Cockermouth, the book traces a circular course embracing the stunning scenery and taking in the places that figured in Wordsworth's life and the scenes that inspired his work. Each stage is planned to end within easy reach of a youth hostel, campsite or bed and breakfast establishment. Concise step-by-step route instructions are augmented with notes and the occasional verse that explains, at salient points along the way, how the landscape shaped the thoughts and work of Wordsworth, and what there is for the present day walker to see and experience. Clear and easy to use route maps and altitude.
