Belatedly to celebrate the opening of this blog and to mark the fact that I consistently bypass the Lake District on my Scottish travels, I’m giving my Outdoor Leisure maps away. Yeah, they’re about 20 years old – so, they’re yellow, not orange – but not too shabby and I don’t think the footpaths have changed much in that time. That’s what the maps are for, being the 1:25000 series, the four sheets covering Windermere, Derwent Water, Ullswater and Coniston.
Also on a nature theme, the Larousse Easy Way Wild Flowers Guide – only any good for Britain and Ireland. Get yours here.
