Over the years these guides have proved to be a huge success with walkers heading into the wonderful, varied countryside the UK has to offer. The main range currently consists of nine titles covering The Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Peak District, Snowdonia, Cotswolds and North York Moors.
Each walking guide includes:
- 20 or 25 outstanding circular walks, graded for suitability.
Ordnance Survey or Harvey mapping.
Handy durable, weather-proof walking cards.
Useful PVC card/map holder.
Fully comprehensive, straightforward User Guide booklet
To compliment the main range, Walking-books also publish a childrens range of walking guides written and illustrated by Peak District primary school teacher Joanne Poyser, whose inspiration stems from her own love of walking. "I thought that if you could get children to feel in charge by making the walks easy and enjoyable to read, they would learn to love walking as much as I do."
This unique series covers The Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, Peak District and Lake District is, therefore, designed for children to take the lead with straightforward instructions and child-friendly maps. The "Making Tracks" Packs also appeals to schools organising outings and day trips and some third-age walkers who enjoy walking with their grandchildren, or simply like to undertake interesting walks at a more leisurely pace.
Each Making Tracks title includes:
Emphasis is on walking with fun and activity in mind.
The eye-catching, brightly illustrated booklets provide all the information needed, and encourage children to look for things of interest along the way.
The colourful collection is written and illustrated to appeal to children between the ages of five and 11.
Has equal appeal to mature walkers interested in shorter walks of interest.
Helpful advice on what children should wear and what to take with them.
