Bodmin Moor - 10 Leisure Walks

Bodmin Moor - 10 Leisure Walks

by: Terry Faull
Bodmin Moor can appear bleak and barren and travellers who cross it along the central A30 main road might think that there is very little of interest or beauty to be found here. But they would be mistaken. The ten walks in this book are places around and about the Moor chosen to show that the scenery is as beautiful as anywhere in the West Country and that the area is steeped in history. The Moor has marshes, rock strewn slopes, craggy tors and great stretches of open rough grassland. These are the haunt of lapwings and snipe, skylarks and ravens and where rare plants can be found.

The walks in this book will appeal to families and others who love exploring the countryside in a leisurely way. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of the Moor that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. All of the walks in this pocket guide are circular and begin at a car park or safe parking location with the grid reference provided. Clear route directions are provided together with sketch maps and the guide is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket.
