William Wordsworth was an avid walker, composing and seeking inspiration on regular and often lengthy walks around his beloved Lake District. This book presents twenty walks connected to his life and work, allowing the reader to follow in the Lakeland laureate's footsteps by the lakes and tarns, rivers and valleys he celebrated in verse.
Fully set out with maps, clear directions, advice on car parking and refreshment suggestions, the walks are also illustrated with over sixty colour photographs. Ranging from two to twelve miles in length, the routes are mostly short and relatively easy. Most are circular, and the few linear walks have details of how to return to the starting point by bus or boat.
