|The Thirlmere Way:
A Long-distance Walk from Manchester to the Lake District
Tim Cappelli has written a guide to the Thirlmere Way that all ramblers, walkers and outdoor people will enjoy, stretching from Manchester to the Lake District.
This 130-mile walk takes the reader along the route of Manchester's
water supply, describing its history and geography, and leading eventually
to the flooded valleys of Thirlmere in the Lake District. It is conveniently
split into 10 sections, each of which contains maps, route descriptions
and notes on public transport and overnight accommodation. The flora
and fauna to be seen along the route are described to further enhance
the enjoyment. As each section is relatively short, even walkers with
modest ambitions will be able to tackle the entire walk as a `holiday
with a difference'.
