Stirling Moss: Great Drives in the Lakes and Dales by Colin Shelbourn
This book features fifteen one day and half-day drives through the landscape of one of the most varied regions in England. The national parks of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales form the core of the book, but less visited areas such as the Eden Valley and the Forest of Bowland are also explored. All the routes have been chosen by Britain's best-known Formula One racing driver, Stirling Moss, and are described by Lakeland author, Colin Shelbourn. Alongside the description of the main routes is a wealth of information on things to see and do along the way, including picnic sites, view-points and even places to stop and take a walk. Stirling's favourite pubs, restaurants and places to visit are all featured, as well as his personal tips and advice on personal motoring. Each route is designed to offer the reader a relaxed and interesting drive and is accompanied by an easy-to-follow map, highlighting the features mentioned in the text and a gazetteer giving comprehensive information on the attractions to be found en route, including museums, famous houses, castles, gardens and visitor centres.
