This unique book explores the history of Cumbria via ten ancient routes that wind through some of the most spectacular parts of the Lake District and the rest of the county. Illustrated throughout with Steve Pipe's stunning photography and inspired by Wainwright's Old Roads of Eastern Lakeland, this book will appeal to those interested in history as well as lovers of all things associated with Wainwright.

The ten routes include the Roman road over High Street, the Cistercian Way (Barrow to Grange-over-Sands) and the Old North Road and encompass ancient stone circles, religious and industrial heritage, Beatrix Potter, the Second World War and much, much more.
