This guidebook describes the 3 Castles Path from Windsor to Winchester, via Odilam Castle. It provides 60 miles of easy walking through peaceful historic and beautiful countryside, following the journey of King John at the time of the Magna Carta in the 13th Century.

A straight line drawn on the map joins these three historic places, with Odiham exactly half way. While many aspects of the countryside have altered dramatically in the 800 years since John's time, the lie of the land remains unchanged; we see the horizons he saw and follow some of the old ways that he may have known. Today the route still passes through a variety of attractive scenery; parkland and forest, over heaths and beside quiet streams and through picturesque villages.

This practical guidebook provides clear and accurate maps along with detailed route descriptions and historical notes. It also includes 6 short circular walks.
