Alone on the Ridgeway is the inner journey of the author’s solo 87 mile walking adventure along one of England’s National Trails in 2016. This book is ideal for walkers who are new to doing a long distance trail, as it includes practical information and how to prepare for such a journey. The main focus, however, is the inner journey of the author as she reconnects with herself on the trail. This is not a guidebook or a book full of cultural and historical details. It’s designed to help you decide whether the Ridgeway is the right trail for you, and if so, how to start planning for it.

More than just a walking travelogue or memoirs of a walking holiday, this book contains Holly’s reflections on walking the Ridgeway, including lessons learned and practical information to help you plan your Ridgeway hiking adventure. It includes a suggested packing list, gear recommendations, and other useful tips, such as when to walk the Ridgeway, where to stay, and how much you’ll need to budget.
