Easy Walking in South Bedfordshire and North Chilterns

Easy Walking in South Bedfordshire and North Chilterns

by: Clive Brown
The area covered in this book is dominated by the chalk ridge escarpment of the Chiltern Hills. The Northern Chilterns and south Bedfordshire are a well kept secret. While other areas and regions of England have a deserved reputation for being excellent walking country, this part of the world has hidden away, guarding its beauty and diversity. Thick wooded slopes, rolling chalk downland, steep hillsides with terrific views at the top, tranquil towpaths, peaceful undulating farmland and sleepy picturesque villages are all featured.

The book presents a comprehensive guide to the best walks in this locality. There are 37 circular routes described, mainly between 4 and 7 miles in distance. Each has detailed route finding instructions, pencil drawn sketch maps with plenty of detail and the text includes background information and nature notes.
