Walks in the Borders (North) by Buses and Trains

Walks in the Borders (North) by Buses and Trains

by: Les Lumsdon and Mike Ledlie
The borderland between England and Wales offers remarkable walking. This is the first of two walking books covering the Welsh borderlands, an intriguing part of Britain that is also known as Y Mers or the Welsh Marches. It is a land that has witnessed border struggles and repression throughout the centuries, and the number of prehistoric fortresses and medieval mounds here lend support to this.

This book covers the northern borderlands from Church Stretton in the south to Prestatyn in the north. There are 20 walks offering different local landscapes and cultures. The walks are all linear, allowing a greater distance and variety of scenery to be experienced including sections of the Maelor Way, Clwydian Way and Shropshire Way. Sometimes a linear walk can feel a more rewarding achievement, and this book allows you to undertake them conveniently.

To avoid concern about missing a return bus all the walks begin with a bus or steam train journey allowing you to walk back to your car without worry about time. Links to timetable websites is included. Each walk has an overview summary and start location information. Detailed route finding instructions include a sketch map.
