The Lake District – DVDs, Guides and Photos

It was around this time last year that I mentioned Amazon.co.uk having Julia Bradbury’s “Wainwright Walks” DVDs (2 series from the BBC) on sale at half price.  Just now I was checking for some new Lake District products and spotted that they’re still available this year at that excellent price.

Looking a little further I discovered that Amazon.co.uk are also offering the boxed set of books at more than 50% discount:  Wainwright Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells


This year the English snow has come earlier and thicker than for many years. Here in Nottinghamshire we’ve not seen anything like it all the time we’ve lived here. The Lakeland mountains, however, are accustomed to their winter white clothing, and this has been captured well in a new photographic book Winter in the Lake District by Val Corbett.  This weekend I’m planning to spend a few days experiencing these sights directly on the spot in Cumbria, but if you can’t get there in person this book is a good long-distance alternative.
