This is an updated second edition of Mary Welsh's walks, covering the delightful area from the Irish Sea to the Trough of Bowland and from Kirkby Lonsdale in the north to Cliviger in the south. Lancashire has a great variety of landscape. The walks are written according to the time of year, each emphasising the seasonal appeal of the landscape, the flora and the birds - although all walks in lovely Lancashire are right for any time of the year. The book is now in full colour throughout.
