Short Walks in Cornwall Guidebook

Short Walks in Cornwall Guidebook

by: John Mason, David Perrott and Laurence Main
Cornwall forms the tip of the southwest peninsula of Britain. The coastline is wild and tricky; headlands and cliffs are interspersed with large sandy beaches in the north, and deeply indented with river estuaries in the south. The interior is dominated by areas of moorland, notably the granite mass of Bodmin Moor. This guide, produced in co-operation with the Ramblers and featuring Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping, suggests perfect ways to get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The book begins with a useful introductory chapter describing the region including its geology and wildlife and outlining the walking highlights and practicalities. Each walk chapter gives a short descriptive overview followed by detailed route finding instructions. A side panel provides practical information including distance, time, terrain, and starting grid reference.
Additional numbered text boxes cross referenced to the OS map describe features of interest along the way. There are also lots of colour photographs illustrating the walks.
