Walks in the Slow Lanes of Essex Guidebook

Walks in the Slow Lanes of Essex Guidebook

author: Angie Jones
This book invites you to explore twenty-five gentle walks in the Essex countryside. It is for the unhurried wanderer who likes to linger and learn along the way. In the authors own words, "I have written for people who enjoy delving into the hidden history of the places visited; to notice and enjoy the beauty of the flowers and hedgerows and to hear some stories about local characters."

Essex offers tiny hamlets of picturesque cottages against a backdrop of far-reaching fields, a railway museum and a nature reserve or two; mills, churches and castles; shimmering estuaries; windswept salt marshes, shadowy woodland and a forgotten lime kiln, all of which feature in these delightful walks.

Each walk has a coloured hand painted map and pastel sketch as well as descriptive, personal recollections, all the work of the author, Angie Jones. There is also background information and local history, (sometimes from the mouths of people she meets along the way) to enhance the adventures and create a journey of discovery. Each walk entry includes a practical information panel giving distance, time, start location, terrain, OS Explorer map sheet number, refreshments, and instructions for getting there. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with colour photographs and drawings.
