Swimhiking in the Lake District and North East England
features thirty two routes in the Lake District with advice on swimhiking across more than fifty lakes and tarns in the national park. A further twelve routes in North East England describe swimhiking around historic sites such as Durham Cathedral, Hadrian’s Wall and Holy Island. It also provides the definitive account of the Frog Graham Round.

The book by Peter Hayes is 200 pages long, with numerous B&W maps and illustrations.

Published in June 2008, Swimhiking costed £9.99 in paperback, or £10 in hardback (prices in British pounds).

However, both the paperback and hardback editions of Swimhiking are now sold out. You may find it in bookshops or second hand. And I may write a second edition, but there again, I may not.



In its review, The Fellrunner magazine (Autumn 2008) described the book as ‘delightfully eccentric and whimsical’, and concluded that ‘the world needs a book like this’. A second review, accesible online is the RALSA review of Swimhiking (and some other good books too). Next
