A Coast to Coast WalkA Coast to Coast Walk: A Pictorial Guide (Wainwright Pictorial Guides) Originally compiled in the 1950s early 1960s, the Wainwright walking guides are perhaps the most distinctive and unusual such guides ever devised. The result of research by their namesake and author over a period of 13 years, the guides have retained their original format and design to this day. The books contain intricate hand drawn sketches by the author, detailing routes of ascent, and gradients of the hills in and around the Lake District and outlying regions. "A Coast to Coast Walk" was devised by Wainwright himself and stretches across 190 miles from St Bees Head on the East coast to Robin Hood's Bay on the West, passing through the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors.

A Walk Around the LakesA Walk Around the Lakes Based on Davies' experiences in the Lake District over one year, this book has many recommendations for the visitor, but it is also an exploration of the past, examining the many famous people associated with the District, in particular the Lake Poets Coleridge, De Quincey and Wordsworth.

A Walk Along the TracksA Walk Along the Tracks: Britain's Disused Railway Lines In 1942, at the height of the railway age, there were 19,000 miles of track in Britain and 7,000 stations. Now, there are only 10,000 miles left and 2,000 stations. But the result is almost 8,000 miles of disused railway lines waiting to be explored. Over the course of a year, Hunter Davies walked along ten lines, some of them like public parks, others neglected and gone completely wild. In many ways, it is the most original and exciting walk he's ever taken, not just as a piece of nostalgia, invoking memories of a bygone age, but in discovering and revealing what he considers to be one of our greatest natural heritages for generations to come. From the Somerset and Dorset to the Ally Pally Railway, from the Wye Valley to the Deeside Line, "A Walk Along The Tracks" is a vivid account of a unique journey recapturing the glories of the railway age.
