The Chilterns Year Round Walks

The Chilterns Year Round Walks

by: Ruth Paley
Home to rolling green hills, chocolate-box villages and quiet paths, the Chilterns are a walker's delight. This book, with its 20 circular walks ranging in length from 3 to 9 miles, takes you through the area's finest spots, with recommendations for all times of year. Highlights include:
Spring: ramble through the bluebell-carpeted woods of Cowleaze and Wendover.
Summer: stroll along Coombe Hill and take in the far-reaching views of the Hambleden Valley.
Autumn: walk in the blazing colour of Burnham Beeches and the Ashridge Estate.
Winter: take a brisk winter wander along the River Thames at Goring or Bourne End.

The book is produced in full colour with lots of photographs. Each walk entry begins with a description of the terrain, Ordnance Survey Explorer map sheet references, starting point with grid reference, how to get there and parking and refreshment options. The following route finding instructions are laid out in precise numbered paragraphs and are supported by clear sketch maps showing the location of each paragraph number. For each walk an introductory description of its main features is included plus notes on what to look out for.
