Good afternoon all
I am staying in Windemere for a week in late August and would like to go for a daily 30 miler , trying to include Hardknott pass . can any one point me in the direction of a decent map I can buy to help on route planning and for when I get lost !
Any help is gratefully received .

    Difficult to improve upon the good old OS maps. You can get one covering the whole of the Lakes, and it will cover a good area surrounding Windermere. At the very least you sholud visit Wilf's at Staveley - there are some nice lanes between Windermere and Staveley. Granny Dowbikinns at Pooley Bridge is good, and would give you a spin over Kirkstone.

    Here's a cracking route I did earlier this year, it takes in Langdale, Blea Tarn, Wrynose and The Struggle, so you can shorten it in places.
