Lakeland Walker Supports Transport for Lakeland!

With the launch of Tubular Fells this spring, Mark Sutcliffe, Editor of Lakeland Walker Magazine, was very keen to give the map some publicity saying he'd  be happy to include a news' story on the map, together with a reader competition.  To hear more about Tubular Fells involvement with Lakeland's oldest walking magazine, then please read on...

Lakeland walkers regular contributor on YokeWhen I contacted Lakeland Walker at the start of the year, I was really thrilled to receive an enthusiastic response from Mark Sutcliffe, the magazine's editor.  Many of you may already know, but the magazine is Britain’s oldest and best-selling Lake District walking magazine.  I immediately felt a rapport with Mark after a short e-mail exchange especially as, like me, he lives in the flatlands away from his beloved fells.  Born on the edge of the Lake District, Mark had climbed most of the main fells by the time he was 16 and as a result of this enthusiasm, the magazine includes a range of walks for a host of abilities.

Like the editor, all the contributors are equally enthusiastic about Lakeland, have walked the routes packed in each issue and include precise step-by-step details and route maps covering the walks.

Planning your next walking weekend? Let Lakeland Walker, which is published every two months, capture your imagination and truly inspire you to get out onto the fells.
Lakeland Walker - your essential guide to the Lakes. On sale the second Thursday every other month. June issue will include a feature on Tubular Fells.
That is just brilliant! 
M. Sutcliffe, Editor of Lakeland Walker Magazine
