Clarion Handbooks to Read

Uncategorised Posted on 28 March 2020 15:07

Hope everyone is doing ok ….. at Patterdale some of you looked at the 3 Clarion Handbooks I have been given (1960-1962). A friend has scanned them in so thought you might like the opportunity to read about the walks and other lovely things in them (in larger print!) – maybe some help with ideas for future walks! If you are interested in having them e-mailed to you please e-mail me at

All best Jackie K
