Walks on the Lleyn Peninsula - Rogers

Walks on the Lleyn Peninsula - Rogers

by: Carl Rogers
The Lleyn Peninsula is the northernmost and smallest of the three great peninsulas which dominate the west coast of England and Wales, namely Lleyn, Pembrokeshire and Cornwall. Like these larger cousins its coastline is both dramatic and beautiful with numerous fine sandy bays, isolated coves and magnificent cliff scenery. Inland, a range of shapely volcanic hills give superb views of the entire peninsula, along with the neighbouring peaks of Snowdonia.

This guide contains 22 circular walks which explore some of the finest sections of the coast, along with several of Lleyn's shapely hills. With distances ranging from 3 to 7 miles, all walkers are catered for, from those looking for a casual half-day walk to add colour to a holiday, to the more ambitious who may perhaps complete two or more routes as an alternative to Snowdonia.

Those not familiar with Lleyn will find the book useful as a guide to some of its most scenic and unspoilt locations. Sketch maps and informative background information accompany the detailed route descriptions. There is an introduction, a brief history of Lleyn plus numerous black and white and some colour illustrations.
