Beyond Radio presenter Beth Pipe releases book on 'The Rivers of Cumbria'

Beth and Steve Pipe

A Beyond Radio presenter and her husband have released their latest book exploring the rivers of Cumbria.

Beth and Steve Pipe's latest book is called 'The Rivers of Cumbria' and is billed as "a fascinating exploration of 10 Cumbrian rivers, highlighting the heritage, wildlife and locations along the way".

Beth hosts the regular Saturday afternoon show on Beyond Radio, 'Beth Across the Bay'.

In their latest book, the Pipes tell the story of each river’s formation, the wildlife and conservation concerns, as well as the social history of the areas they flow through.

Each chapter focuses on a different river including the Eden, Derwent, Kent Caldew, Lune, Duddon, Esk and Irthing.

The authors also highlight the local culture and show how the rivers have shaped and defined the county’s character and identity.

Illustrated throughout, 'The Rivers of Cumbria' will be of interest to local people, visitors and anyone with an interest in this beautiful part of the country.

As experienced hikers, the Pipes tackle the outdoors in all weathers to find the spectacular and the dramatic be that a far-reaching panorama or a tiny ecosystem hidden away within limestone crags.

Such is their knowledge of the Cumbrian landscape that they were invited by Kensington Palace to guide the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on a recent walk.

They will be holding a book signing from 11am to 1pm in Waterstones in Kendal this Saturday, January 27.

The book is available from Amberley Publishing, and in Kindle, Kobo and iBook format

Last year Beth and Steve released 'Brewers Loop', a Lake District beer guide.
