Walking Close to the Quantock Hills

by: Clive Brown
One of a range of 'no frills' local walking guide booklets which admirably achieve their objective of getting you out in the countryside amongst beautiful scenery on carefully chosen routes full of interest. The directions are clear and precise and the pencil drawn sketch maps are particularly attractive as well as practical.

The range starts not far from the M5 motorway between Taunton and Bridgwater and extends down into the sea east of Watchet.
