Walks in the Footsteps of Cornish Writers Guidebook

Walks in the Footsteps of Cornish Writers Guidebook

author: Sue Kittow
This guidebook features 20 walks each associated with different writers connected with Cornwall. The author says "it has been fascinating talking to the contemporary authors about their favourite walks. Similarly, it has been interesting to find out more about the places that were so special to well Known writers who are no longer with us, and why they were so special".

"Some writers, like John Betjeman, have made their favourite places famous through their verse or novels. Others, like Philip Marsden, use regular walks as a valuable part of their writing day, and it has been a privilege to share their thoughts. From Derek Tangye's books based in Lamorna to the Reverend Stephen Hawker at Morwenstow, here are a variety of walks that inspired the authors, and I hope will inspire readers too."

Each walk has an introduction, a 'factbox' with all essential information including distance, time, OS Explorer map, starting grid reference, terrain, refreshments, public transport, and points of interest. There is information about each of the authors and history. Clear route-finding directions and sketch maps are included. What makes these walks different is their personal style, the delightful details, and excellent photographs, which combine to make this a unique book to keep and pore over.
