Walking on Bridges

A Cumbria Guide


This book takes the reader on walks along the packhorse routes and bridges of the English Lake District. Walking on Bridges lists and describes the old packhorse bridges as well as saying something about bridges in general. It also contains descriptions of 24 walks over passes used by the packhorses, ten short walks, each with a bridge, and twelve longer, circular walks which are mainly on packhorse routes. There are 61 full-colour route maps, four overview maps, 36 colour plates and 26 drawings.

Robin Bray was born in Worsley, near Manchester, and went to school in Bolton. He studied medicine at University College London and ultimately became a consultant anaesthetist in Newcastle upon Tyne, where he still lives. He has had a lifelong love affair with the Lake District and has struggled up most of its mountains at one time or another as well as having frequented a fair selection of its bed and breakfasts. As well as appreciating beautiful countryside he has always admired the unsung engineers who have made our world so much easier to live in. He has managed to combine the two in this book which he hopes you will enjoy.
