The Home Counties from London by Train

The Home Counties from London by Train

by: Nick Channer
This Pathfinder guidebook provides exhilarating countryside walks of enormous scenic variety and range of distances. They include sea vistas at Walton-on-the-Naze and Sandwich; the Berkshire Downs and Chiltern Hills; over the leafy North Downs at Box Hill and in South Down's parkland at Arundel, and beside the Thames at Windsor and along the Grand Union Canal from Berkhamsted. All these wonderful walks are reachable by train from Central London railway stations.

Each of the 27 walks is described in detail and includes Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale full colour maps with the route highlighted. Practical information is clearly shown in a side panel and includes start location (station), distance, height gain, approximate time, terrain, GPS waypoints and OS map references. The walks are arranged into four county based sections, each with an introductory section describing the region. The book also includes colour photographs and an overview table giving the main facts relating to each of the walks.
