Mining Walks in Cornwall - 10 Leisure Walks

Mining Walks in Cornwall - 10 Leisure Walks

by: Peter Hancock
In journeys through the West Country we are often confronted by tantalising glimpses of the industrial past in the form of evocative engine houses, chimney stacks, canals and harbours. This book aims to help the inquisitive walker delve deeper into this rich legacy by providing ten diverse walks throughout Cornwall and West Devon. It not only offers step-by-step routes, sketch maps and inspirational full colour photographs, but also provides information about the places visited along the way.

A Boot Up Mining Walks in Cornwall & West Devon offers fresh ideas and gives a different perspective to a familiar ramble. Whether crossing open moor or walking along a coastal path, trekking through wooded valleys or following a long abandoned canal, it is a convenient pocket-sized companion designed to add an extra dimension to the enjoyment of a leisurely walk.

The walks are graded from easy to challenging. Distance and a short description of the terrain are also provided. Clear route directions are provided together with simple sketch maps. The book is well illustrated throughout with colour photographs. The handy size also means it will slip easily into your pocket, protected by the tough cover.
