If you’re lucky enough to win, you’ll be spoilt for what to do on your next trip to the Lakes. You’ll get all the knowledge contained within these:

Signed copy of ‘Lake District Low Level and Lake Walks’ by Vivienne Crow worth £9.99

Winning awards such as ‘Outdoor Book of the Year’, Vivienne Crow is a writer and photographer with a great passion for and knowledge of the Lakes. In ‘Lake District Low Level and Lake Walks’ she guides you through walks with meticulous detail. Suitable for beginners or seasoned fell walkers, there’s enough in here to keep you going for years.

Signed copy of ‘Great Mountain Days in the Lake District’ by Mark Richards worth £18.95

Mark Richards started writing guide books with the encouragement of Alfred Wainwright himself. In many ways he’s a spiritual successor. This guide book gives you fifty routes to tackle the Lake District’s many mountains. Signed by the author himself and with hand-drawn maps, you really won’t find a book like this by anybody else.

Wainwright Fells Map and Tick List from GuideUs worth £9.99

GuideUs is a team of designers with a real passion for fell walking. This prize really comes into play once you’ve made use of the other two. This beautifully designed, 594 × 420mm map printed on heavyweight 170gsm paper, lets you keep track of all fells you conquer. A perfect piece of wall art, you can impress guests with a visual display of every fell you’ve tackled.

That’s £38.93 worth of stuff to be exact. And you don’t even have to open your wallet.

For your chance to win simply enter your name and email. Easy, right?
