'Follows a beautiful and historic route around the North of Lancashire. Totalling just over 100 miles it is designed to be walked in seven days, but for less ambitious hikers huge enjoyment can be taken from exploring smaller sections of the route ... Directions are detailed and the book includes a great deal of fascinating information and stories about places passed along the way.'
