Lady Anne's Way is a long distance trail of 100 miles following in the footsteps of the remarkable Lady Anne Clifford.
The walk is one of great beauty and historical interest; it passes through the wonders of the Yorkshire Dales with its unspoilt villages and its limestone pavements and progresses through the remote and rugged fellside of Mallerstang, to enter Cumbria and the romantic delights and hidden haunts of the Eden Valley.
Large scale strip maps and detailed descriptions of the entire route are interspersed with fascinating historical background, brought together with 40 beautiful drawings from celebrated artist Frank Gordon.
This is truly a walk for connoisseurs of the wild open country of the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria.
Bridget and David walked Lady Anne's Way in September 2014, using the Skyware Guide. See their video diary above.
"If you like your long-distance walks to
have a theme, this could be the perfect book"
"Sheila Gordon has a lively, interesting
style of writing that makes the book a pleasure to read"
"even if you are not planning to do the
full walk, the book is well worth buying for the insights it
brings into the life and achievements of a formidable early
feminist and philanthropist of the Dales, for the excellent
linear maps and for Frank's evocative drawings"
