Ceredigion 40 Coast and Country Walks

by: Julian Rollins
On the wild-west coast of Wales, Ceredigion is famed for its glorious sandy beaches, dramatic sea cliffs and caves, spectacular sunsets and a wonderful array of wildlife, including the largest colony of bottlenose dolphins in Europe. Away from the sea, rolling farmland, fertile river valleys and characterful market towns give way to the brooding Cambrian Mountains, the main watershed of Wales.

Distance, time and terrain are provided together with a short introduction to the walk, followed by route finding directions and a coloured sketch map. It would be advisable to also carry the appropriate OS Explorer map and map references are provided.

Somerset Coast Path

Somerset Coast Path

Much of it is already in place, and it's an eventful dramatic walk. Damian Hall's guide celebrates the landscape, towns and villages along the way, and introduces you to the history and wildlife that enrich this beautiful part of the country.
The guide includes full colour Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping for the entire route plus GPS references. The route is described in ten sections with clear instructions to guide you safely along. Background information is provided on everything from archaeology and history to wild flowers and wildlife and the book is lavishly illustrated with colour photography throughout.

Dorset Jubilee Trail

Dorset Jubilee Trail

by: Ramblers' Association Dorset Area
The Dorset Jubilee Trail is one of several long distance paths that owe their existence to the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Ramblers' Association. As its special project to celebrate this Jubilee in 1995, Dorset Area chose to create a 90 mile (145km) route across the county. The Trail was opened on 24th September 1995.
The Trail runs from Forde Abbey on the Somerset border in the west, across Dorset to Bokerley Dyke in the north-east on the Hampshire border. The route was devised to avoid existing trails and popular rights of way and to seek out the little known and little used paths in order to open them up for all to enjoy. The Trail winds through quiet villages, passing rural churches, and offers extensive views over the rolling downs and secret valleys that make Dorset so special. The Trail is supported by Dorset County Council and is waymarked.
The guide has comprehensive route finding instructions including grid references and highly detailed full colour contoured maps at a scale of 1:35,000 with the route clearly identified. There is also a lot of useful and anecdotal information about the places visited en-route plus some colour photographs of particularly notable places. There is a mileage chart listing towns and villages on the route to help with planning plus contact details to assist with arranging accommodation.
From Forde Abbey the guide describes the route in short sections with starting points at Coles Cross, Stoke Abbott, Mapperton, Toller Porcorum, Compton Barn, Little Bredy, Upwey, Winterborne Came, Moigne Combe Farm, Moreton, Bere Regis, Milton Abbas, Winterborne Stickland, Durweston, Tarrant Gunville, Chettle, Harley Gap, Cranborne.

Palladian Way

by: Guy Vowels
The Palladian Way is a 125 mile walk linking England's finest Palladian estates in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, beginning in Buckingham and finishing in Bath.

The Monarch's Way - Book 1

The Monarch's Way - Book 1

by: Trevor Antill
The Midlands from Worcester to Stratford-upon-Avon via Boscobel (175 miles). One of the best known stories in British history is that of the escape of Charles ll after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. For six exciting weeks, and hotly pursued by the parliamentary forces under Oliver Cromwell, he travelled first north through what is now the Black Country, then south through the Cotswolds and the Mendips to the South Coast, and finally along the South Downs to Shoreham where he made his escape to France. Loyally supported by his followers, many at great risk to their own lives, he was given shelter in places both great and humble, many of which still exist today - including the famous Boscobel oak tree.
Trevor Antill has now designed this long distance walk which closely follows the route taken by Charles and enables you to visit many places, maybe only previously known to you through the history books, and also takes you through some of the finest scenery in western and southern England.
In this, the first of three books, the route follows what was probably the most hazardous part of the King's route, from the historic city of Worcester to Shakespeare's Stratford-on-Avon. The guide gives detailed route instructions together with sketch maps and facinating facts about the King's journey and the places he visited.

Gloucestershire Way

Gloucestershire Way

by: Gerry Stewart
The Gloucestershire Way provides a continuous walk of 100 miles through the distinctive areas of the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale and Cotswold, conceived on the theme of 'Forest and Vale and High Blue Hill' from the poem 'A Song of Gloucestershire by Will Harvey of Minsterworth. Beginning at Chepstow the route passes through Cinderford, Gloucester and Stow-on-the-Wold before finishing at Tewkesbury.
The guide breaks the route down into eight sections each with a seperate chapter. These sections begin at Chepstow, Park End, May Hill, Gloucester, Crickley, Salperton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Winchcombe. The clear route descriptions are accompanied by good sketch maps together with a wealth of anecdotal information printed in italics to distinguish it from route instructions. The text is delightfully enhanced by the inclusion of carefully chosen excerpts of poetry by Gloucestershire poets. The Gloucestershire Way is a memorable ramble, traversing three very distinct countryside landscapes, and is likely to appeal to many types of walkers including families. Mainly on field and woodland paths usually maintained in excellent condition and waymarked by Gloucestershire County Council.
This guide also includes The Worcestershire way Link. This is a pleasant walk linking the Gloucestershire Way to The Worcestershire Way on the Malvern Hills and provides a continuous walk through both counties.

Wysis Way

Wysis Way

by: Gerry Stewart
From the ancient earthwork of Offa's Dyke, built to the order of Offa, the powerful king of Mercia (the English Midlands), in 800AD, to the infant Thames rising from the limestone high in Gloucestershire, the Wysis Way runs for 55 miles through the distinctive areas of the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale and Cotswold. Linking the two great National Trails, Offa's Dyke Path and the Thames Path, it provides the link to continuous walking for 400 miles from the North Wales coast to Greenwich.
The Wysis Way starts at Monmouth, where Offa's Dyke crosses the River Wye and heads east across a tract of the Forest of Dean and the Leaden Vale to Gloucester, which fully validates the old line 'blessed is the eye between the Severn and the Wye'. After crossing the River Severn the route heads south east over Robinswood Hill and climbs the Cotswold escarpment to Painswick Beacon. It continues onwards through this glorious countryside visiting Bisley, Sapperton and finally meets the Thames, or Isis, near Kemble. The guide provides very clear directions, excellent sketch maps and some background information.

Three Choirs Way

Three Choirs Way

by: Gerry Stewart
A footpath way between Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester, with a theme linking the walk and the Music Festival celebrated at the three Cathedrals for over 300 years. The Three Choirs Festival arose, partly, from the close proximity of the three cities which has resulted in close cultural ties between them. The Three Choirs Way serves to strengthen and promote those links, by providing a glorious walk of 100 miles through the attractive and varied countryside of the three counties, evoked in the old adage 'blessed is the eye between Severn and Wye'.
The guide breaks the route down into eight sections with a chapter for each. The starting points for each section are Gloucester, Kilcot, Haugh Wood, Withington, Stanford Bishop, Broadheath, Malvern Link, Pendock and then back to Gloucester. The route instructions are comprehensive and are supported by clear sketch maps. The text is further enhanced by the addition of background information and some thoughtfully chosen local poetry.
