In many ways the Ullswater and Patterdale region provides some of the best and most varied walks in the Lake District. This famous, long and dog-legged valley, is at the heart of a superlative and diverse landscape. From the high adventures on Helvellyn's Striding Edge to the gentle beauty of Ullswater's shores, the walking here is quite superb.
This new guidebook contains 20 circular walks - plenty for everyone, whether you are an energetic fell walker wishing to scale the heights, or simply want to enjoy the delights of the area at valley level. There are walks and experiences here for all seasons and most weather conditions and by perusing the Fact File, which accompanies each walk description, you can easily select a walk to suit your ambitions. Walks are graded from Easy to Very Difficult with a duration of one hour to those stretching to six hours.
Bill Birkett's guidebooks offer a detailed local's knowledge of the area and include a spread of beautiful and informative photographs for each walk.
