Walks for all Ages in Nottinghamshire

Walks for all Ages in Nottinghamshire

by: Jane Broomhead
The twenty walks in this book have been specially chosen for family groups, the longest being six miles and with several routes having both longer and shorter options. The choice of routes has been chosen to ensure that there is something of interest, with varied scenery, historical points of interest and an abundance of wildlife.

Although suitable for enthusiastic walkers many of the walks will be of interest to families with children. Nottinghamshire has a wealth of attractions from children's theme parks, nature reserves and historical buildings to canal and riverside walks. This book has been written to give you a taster to what is an excellent County for walking. The 'Basics' panel which accompanies each route will help you choose walks within your family's abilities and you can always work up to longer ones as your experience develops. Note too that the 'Start Point' information gives a postcode for satellite navigation users, although in a few cases, where this is in open countryside, these may be only approximate.

Each walk begins with a description of the local area, followed by fully detailed route instructions. Full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25000 scale Explorer mapping supports the text and there are snippets of useful information as you go along. The book also has lots of colour photographs throughout. At the beginning of each walk practical information listed includes distance, gradient, difficulty, approximate time, number of stiles, OS Explorer map number, path description, start point grid reference, parking information, suitability for dogs and local refreshment facilities and public toilets.
