Sherwood Forest and the East Midlands Walks

by: Nick Channer, Neil Coates, Dennis Kelsall
This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout this varied area which includes parts of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, 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.
