Walks in the Three Choirs Counties

Walks in the Three Choirs Counties

by: Roy Woodcock
This guidebook describes walks in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire - the Three Choirs Counties. The term derives from the Three Choirs music festival which takes place at each city's cathedral in annual rotation. These three counties contain some of England's finest scenery and the choice of walks here takes ten locations from each. There are routes through each of the three county towns and across many of the best known landscapes as well as visiting several less well known areas.

The walks are fairly short, from four to seven miles, and can therefore be completed in a half day. Not strenuous or rugged, the walks are suited to anyone seeking a day out in the fresh air, with gentle exercise, whilst enjoying the beautiful views and countryside. Each walk entry begins with a short overview and essential information including distance, getting to the start and parking information. The comprehensive route descriptions are supported by clear, detailed sketch maps. Also included is information on places of interest passed along the way.
