Malverns to Warwickshire Outstanding Circular Walks

Malverns to Warwickshire Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Nick Channer
This Pathfinder guide provides 100 miles of walking pleasure exploring the soaring green hills of the Malverns, so inspirational to Elgar, the gentle countryside of George Eliot's Warwickshire, the pretty half-timbered villages of Shakespeare country around Stratford-upon-Avon and Worcestershire's fecund farmland, fictional setting to 'The Archers'; plus, the open slopes of the Clent and Lickey Hills, and the northern fringes of the Cotswolds.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed 1:25,000 scale Explorer colour maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. GPS data for each waypoint of every walk is included. With 28 routes to choose from, colour coded for difficulty, and all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations.

The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks. Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features. The main route finding instructions have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. The route is highlighted in yellow on the map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
