But, seeing as here he totes Coke Zero and elsewhere online says he remembered the wine, just how did he lubricate his night in the bothy? Across landscape that so inspired the Romantic poets, he takes in remote parts of the parkland that many tourists miss – enjoying encounters aplenty with farmers, fell runners and fellow hikers, while staying in shepherds’ huts, bothies and old climbers’ hotels along the way, and even going for a (chilly) dip in Derwentwater.

Ride traffic free paths along the River Wharfe and Swale stopping for river swims and picnics in sun-dappled woodlands.

Thankfully Tom does not agree and in his book, like Stuart before him, he is if anything more interested in the people he meets than anything else although he still has many a Lakeland tale to tell which he does as he covers many miles, passing through a lot of towns and villages. The Chalke History Festival announces a new name, new look, and tons for history buffs to get their teeth into!
