This very neat, Wire-Bound Guidebook is lighter in weight than the Wainwright guides and only a few centimetres longer.
For me it has everything for the modern fellwalker. Vivienne has included a very personal, interesting and comprehensive introduction.
Each walking route includes: Walking route summary. Ratings for Effort, Time, Distance, Ascents/Descents, Refreshments and Vertigo Risk.
Fully detailed walk description, including frequent timings to aid navigation and check your progress.
GPS waypoints at every key point on every route. Full colour 1:40,000 scale O.S. licenced mapping for each route. Short walk and stroll alternatives. Vivienne Crow is a journalist who writes a weekly walking column in three newspapers in north Cumbria.
She writes travel/outdoors features for a variety of publications around the world.
I love her cute symbols rating guide, colourful maps, reassuring photos and clear chatty descriptions which make for a safe and enjoyable day in the fells.
