Suffolk Coast Walk

Suffolk Coast Walk

by: Peter Caton
Combining travel writing with a walking guide, Suffolk Coast Walk provides a wonderful insight into this fascinating county and is the companion book to Essex Coast Walk by the same author (available on Long Distance Paths/Essex Coast Walk page).
Peter Caton explores all 162 miles of Suffolk's unique coastline, describing the route for fellow walkers, with an engaging narrative that tells of the beauty, history and wildlife of this mysterious and varied coast. The reader is taken up and down Suffolk's remote creeks and rivers, past sandy beaches and huge expanses of shingle, through nature reserves, seaside resorts and tiny villages.
Throughout his journey, Peter uncovers many mysteries and considers the stories behind legends of Anne Boleyn, invading Germans, a half-man half-fish character, UFOs, Crazy Mary and bells tolling beneath the sea. He visits Suffolk's only island and takes a boat trip to investigate the secret world of Orford Ness.
More than 100 colour and black & white photos illustrate the story of the walk and the beauty and atmosphere of county's remarkable coast. With maps at the start of each chapter, this is a book for those who enjoy a short stroll, a longer ramble or simply wish to follow the coast from the comfort of an armchair.

The Mortimer Trail

The Mortimer Trail

by: Trevor Hulme and Abby Marshall
There can be few better places to walk in lowland England than in the Marches, the borderland country of England and Wales. This is where gentle pastures give way to steeply wooded slopes and open hill tops. Here you will find the Mortimer Trail, a 30 mile walking route from Ludlow to Kington which follows a succession of hills and ridges. It is so called because this was the heartland of the Mortimer family, holders of the most powerful of the Norman Earldoms. The trail passes through forests where tracts of broadleaved woodland give way to coniferous stands. The route descends from the high ridges to the water's edge of the Teme, Lugg and Arrow rivers where Kingfisher and Heron can be seen. Climbs are constantly rewarded by views of the Forest of Radnor, the Black Mountains, Clee Hills and the Malvern Hills.
The guide, printed on waterproof paper, describes the route in three sections supported by colour maps and photographs. There is a further section describing five additional loop walks branching off the Trail. Preliminary sections covering landscape, wildlife, ancient camps, Roman roads, and the Mortimer family put the Trail in context. The three sections are: Ludlow to Orleton Common; Orleton Common to Byton; Byton to Kington. The loop walks are at Yarpole; Wigmore; Lingen; Shobdon and Titley.

Staffordshire Way

Staffordshire Way

by Staffordshire County Council
The Staffordshire Way spans the length of the county for 92 miles from Mow Cop in the north to Kinver Edge in the south. The route explores some of Staffordshire's loveliest scenery and several of its most interesting towns and villages, as well as linking country parks and picnic places.
Staffordshire is a beautiful rural county of scenic contrast, and the Way explores it to best advantage. Starting among rugged gritstone hills on the edge of the Peak District, the Way turns south through the wooded valleys of 'Staffordshire's Rhineland'. In mid-Staffordshire, Cannock Chase is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Way explores the heart of this lovely area. Beyond, the superb landscaped parklands of the south of the county, the results of 18th century genius and creativity, have earned it the name of 'Parkland Staffordshire'. The climax of the route is a lofty sandstone ridge and journey's end at the county boundary.
The guide contains lots of interesting background information as well as detailed clear route finding instructions and large scale ordnance survey based maps.

Capital Ring

Capital Ring

by: Colin Saunders
The Capital Ring is a 78 mile circular footpath seeking out a hidden corridor of green space around inner London. On of Transport for London's officially designated walking routes, it takes in the capital's parks, woodlands, towpaths, river banks and historic cemeteries. It visits famous landmarks like the Thames Barrier, Eltham Palace and Highgate Woods, but also encounters lesser-known treasurers like the Parkland Walk, Abney Park Cemetery and the windmill on Wimbledon Common.
Not only is it a wondrous window on the green and tranquil flipside od a buzzing capital city; it also affords a fascinating vision of a metropolis constantly transforming itself, above all with the mesmerising views of the 2012 Olympic Park from the Ring's quiet riverside progress through east London.
Each chapter of the guide covers one day's walk, including detailed descriptions and points of interest, together with Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps specially prepared to accompany the text with key sites numbered in the text and on the maps for easy identification. There are numerous full-colour photographs of the areas through which the route passes; background information on local history, wildlife, archaeology, architecture, industry and land use. A reference section details public transport to and from the starting and finishing points of each of the 15 sections of the walk.

Usk Valley Walk

Usk Valley Walk

by: Mike Wagstaff and John Wilkinson
The Usk Valley Walk is 48 miles long and runs from Caerleon, near Newport , in the south, to Brecon. The walk never strays very far away from the river and from Llanellen onwards, it utilises part of the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. The highest point reached is 1000ft above sea level: the amount of ascent and descent encountered is limited to a few short, sharp climbs. From its source on Fan Foel in the Brecon Beacons National Park the River Usk flows through Brecon along a broad valley separating the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. Below Crickhowell it crosses from the county of Powys into Monmouthshire. From Abergavenny it meanders past quiet hamlets and villages; the historic market town of Usk; the former Roman fortress of Isca, now Caerleon, entering the Severn estuary at Newport.
The guide describes the route in five sections, each with clear colour maps and detailed route finding instructions. The sections are: Caerleon to Usk; Usk to Llanellen; Llanellen to Llangattock; Llangattock to Aber (Talybont); Aber (Talybont) to Brecon. Preliminary sections cover the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, and practicalities of the walk.

Macmillan Way

Macmillan Way

by: Macmillan Way Association
This 290 mile coast to coast long distance path has been developed to increase public awareness of Macmillan Cancer Relief and to assist in raising funds for this charitable organisation. The trail first crosses the Lincolnshire Fens and then follows, as near as possible, the course of the long oolitic limestone belt which comprises stone known as 'Cotswold' in the Cotswold area, but which runs in slightly varying forms all the way from South Yorkshire to Dorset. The Macmillan Way starts from Boston and then runs across the Fens to their western edge at Kate's Bridge near Bourne before joining the limestone belt. From here it runs to Stamford and then along the shore of Rutland Water to Oakham. It then heads south and west to Abbotsbury in Dorset, a coastal village noted for its lovely old limestone buildings.
This highly detailed full colour guide has full route details and corresponding coloured sketch maps which are easily associated with the text. The guide divides the route into nine sections, each allocated a chapter. The section starting points are Boston; Obthorpe; Oakham; Flore; Warmington; Maugersbury near Stow-on-the-Wold; Tunnel House Inn near Coates; Bradford-on-Avon; Bruton. We would recommend this route and the guide, not just because of the joy of walking this varied and rewarding route, but because by doing so you are helping a very worthy cause.
