ABSTRACT OF TOURS.
FOR the accommodation of strangers about to make the Tour of the Lake District, and who are in doubt, from the number of routes, which, and in what order to take them, we have drawn up an abstract of four Tours, one of which is supposed to commence and terminate at each of the four principal towns lying upon the edge of the district, viz. Ulverston, Kendal, Penrith, and Whitehaven. By consulting the map and charts, Tourists will be able to vary with ease any part of the Tours here given according to their convenience; and by reference to the Index, the reader will find the page of the volume, in which the objects mentioned in the abstract are described at length.
