Over the Hill at Sixty Something?

12 April 2019

Barry Holmes’ book about fell running the 214 ‘Wainwrights’ aged 60 started as a physical challenge and ended up as a publishing one, as he turned each run into an intricate hand-drawn map. Over the Hill at 60 is one of our best selling books here at Fishers.

WALK OF THE MONTH - a hilltop view of Derwentwater

13 November 2018

Any Lake District regular knows Derwentwater. It dominates the town of Keswick, and the view from the surrounding tops. This route, though, starts from Grange at its southern end and picks a route over the lower tops, as well as the lakeside itself, to give a variety of perspectives on this perennial favourite. There is a good bus service from Keswick to Grange throughout the year.
