Cumbria Way: £2 discount on pre-order

Cumbria Way cover

We are proud to announce that our new Cumbria Way guidebook (out in March) is available to pre-order at a £2 discount. The route goes from Ulverston, where author Paddy Dillon lives, north to Carlisle over the summit of High Pike with its superb panorama. As Eric Robson (broadcaster and author) says in his Foreword: “If there's one walk that captures the sheer variety of the Lakeland landscape, this is it.”


Harvey's Rob Roy Way map

Harvey RRW map

Following on from their Settle to Carlisle Way map, Harvey Maps just released their Rob Roy Way route map. We offer it to you discounted to £11. Having the whole route on one sheet is much more convenient, as well as cheaper, than the 4-map Explorer pack that we used to sell. The Harvey map is at 1:40,000, waterproof and lightweight and is recommended.


ebooks: are you interested? More free Compeed

We have been slow to move into ebooks, mainly because we designed our books so carefully to be usable in wind and rain, and to need no battery, mobile signal nor wifi. But the world has changed, and we realise that demand exists. We are converting a Rucksack Reader, at first for Kindle Fire which seems to be the most popular platform. If you are keen to see also versions for iPad or some other device, please let us know. Also if there is any specific title that you'd like to buy from us as an ebook, please contact us. We expect our selling price to be about GBP7, with delivery via Amazon. We still have packs of Compeed to give away for the first three helpful or amusing replies.
