Thames Valley and Chilterns Outstanding Circular Walks

Thames Valley and Chilterns Outstanding Circular Walks

by: Nick Channer
This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks throughout this varied and beautiful region. The walks include 180 miles of wonderful, heritage-rich walking with circular routes along the Thames from Godstow Abbey to Royal Windsor and Runnymede, and including the rolling Berkshire Downs, Whitehorse Hill, 'Wind in the Willows' country and the glorious Chilterns woodlands of the Ashridge Estate and Burnham Beeches.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed full colour 1:25,000 scale maps from Ordnance Survey and specially commissioned photographs. GPS data is also included for each waypoint to assist navigation. 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. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and 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.
