28 magical walks through Britain's most popular hiking and swimming region, combining classic Lakes fell walking with adventurous swimming. Stunning photography, engaging stories and history - the book is packed with all the practical information you need - directions, route maps and downloadable guides. The fifth in the best-selling series.
These engaging folk tales from Cumbria were collected as fragments that the author has brought back to life. In the 2001 New Year Honours List he was awarded the MBE for services to storytelling and charity, and in 2010 was appointed as the first UK Storyteller Laureate.
Including a gang of smugglers and an ugly face-pulling competition, not only will children love to read them, or listen to them being read, the tales will also stimulate an interest in the area, and help children engage with their own surroundings wherever they live .
