Day Walks in Devon

Day Walks in Devon

by: Jen and Sim Benson
This guidebook features 20 circular routes, between 8.8 and 17.6 miles in length, suitable for hillwalkers of all abilities. The routes are split into five geographical areas: North Devon and Exmoor, Torridge and West Devon, Mid and East Devon, Dartmoor, and South Devon and the South Hams.

Devon has some of the most diverse and beautiful terrain of any county in England. Local authors Jen and Sim Benson share their favourite walks in this region, including coastal circuits taking in sections of the South West Coast Path past Baggy Point and Hartland Point; moorland loops of Dartmoor's granite tors such as Haytor and High Willhays; and tours through the county's rich history at Berry Pomeroy Castle and Castle Drogo.

This guide is a visual delight with lots of stunning colour photography throughout and full colour OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping with the routes clearly outlined in green. Each walk chapter begins with an introduction to the walk, describing its features and places of interest. Distance, time, navigation information, starting grid reference and refreshment stops are provided. This is followed by a detailed route finding section with numbered paragraphs linked to numbers on the OS route maps.
