Welsh Marches - 40 Town and Country Walks

Welsh Marches - 40 Town and Country Walks

by: Ben Giles
Where the lowlands of England meet the hills of Wales, the Welsh Marches of Shropshire, and Herefordshire have long been true border country. With a long and fascinating history, there are wooded river valleys, ruined castles, moorland uplands and ancient market towns, making this perfect walking country for those who prefer a gentler pace of time to explore along the way.

This attractive pocket guide contains forty circular routes in the heart of the Welsh Marches, taking in the hills of Shropshire, Mortimer and Clun Forests, and the rolling countryside of the Herefordshire Plain all the way to the slopes of the Black Mountains near the border town of Hay-on-Wye. Ranging in length from 3km to 16km, most of the routes are intended as comfortable walks or strolls requiring no more than half a day to complete. Each route begins with distance, time and terrain plus a short summary of the area. Route finding instructions focus on the salient points of navigation and there are simple colour sketch maps and photographs throughout.
