Cicerone author Mark Richards : Lakeland Fellranger news

18 Apr , 2011  

I have never been a peak-bagger, I simply love being on the fell. So the drive to create this series is more an attempt to embrace the magic of the whole fell environment in my mind’s eye. Books five – The Western Fells and six – The North-Western Fells have been two years in the making, good years for all the right reasons.
