The Gathering Tide by Karen Lloyd
(Saraband) has won The Striding Edge prize (a Lakeland Book Award)
and was runner up for the Lakeland Book of the Year Award 2016.
Embarking on a series of walks that take in beguiling landscapes
and ever-changing seascapes, Karen Lloyd tells the compelling
stories of the places, people, wildlife and history of Morecambe
The Round: In Bob Graham's Footsteps
by Steve Chilton (Sandstone Press) was also shortlisted for the
Lakeland Book of the Year Award. It is not only a history of the
Bob Graham Round, but also an exploration of the what, why and how
of the classic fell endurance challenge. The Round
was also shortlisted for The Great Outdoors Magazine's Outdoor Book
of the Year.

Davies, broadcaster and writer Eric Robson and BBC News broadcaster
