Isle of Wight Coastal Path

Complete Isle of Wight Coastal Footpath

Complete Isle of Wight Coastal Footpath

by: Brian Smailes
To walk the entire coastline of an island such as the Isle of Wight is a reward in itself - to experience the exhilarating views and coastline of this island is something different. The cliffs, sea views, fresh air and the Downs all combine to make this walk special. The coastal footpath described in this book is divided into 5 sections. This gives walkers the choice of completing one section per day, or the entire route in 4-6 days.

The illustrated guide includes detailed route instructions, practical information on preparation and equipment, distance and walking time listings and much else. Campsites, pubs, information centres and attractions on route are all given to help you plan ahead and enjoy the amenities the island has to offer. Whether on holiday or a week-end break, take time out to experience all or part of this walk, enjoying the space of Tennyson Down or admiring the Needles, with breath-taking views over the Solent.

The day walk sections are as follows:
(1) Ryde Pier to Hope Beach, Shanklin - 14.1 miles
(2) Hope Beach, Shanklin to Atherfield - 13.3 miles
(3) Atherfield to Colwell Bay - 14.2 miles
(4) Colwell Bay to Great Thorness - 14.9 miles

Isle of Wight Walkers' Map

Isle of Wight Walkers' Map

by: David Brown
This walkers' map shows challenge routes and walking trails highlighted. It is based on OS 50k scale mapping expanded in size to produce a 32k map. The OS features, text and logos are now 50% larger making them much easier to read under outdoor conditions. The Isle of Wight Challenge Route (66 miles) is specially highlighted in green and white so that the route stands out against the OS background map. The Earl Mountbatten Hospice's Walk (26.5 miles) is highlighted in gold and white. A large range of GPS surveyed walking trails are highlighted in grey and white. The result is an easy to read map with walking trails specially highlighted.

The map is printed on both sides with the east of the Island on the cover side and the west on the reverse side with a ten mile common overlap to the two sides. The result is a double sided 840mm by 694mm Super-Durable Map with all the features of an Ordnance Survey map. The map is printed onto a 100-micron plastic substrate using a special UV curing inks process.

The printed map sheet is folded using a special concertina map fold to its pocket size of 230mm by 120mm. The result is the Isle of Wight Walkers' Map. A lightweight map that is both accurate and easy to read and use. Super-Durable means your map is waterproof and tearproof, and fully recyclable. This map will survive anything your Isle of Wight walking adventures can throw at it and afterwards will fold up like new.
