Walking Pages 2017

The walk is conveniently divided into 14 day-walk sections (legs) of between 9 and 15 miles, plus two alternative route options for one of the sections. In addition to the written text each section has a map of the route. The description for each leg has been written so that it is possible to follow the route without recourse to a map, although the authors do recommend the use of OS Explorer maps to give additional enjoyment to your walk. Also included in the text are notes of places of interest that you pass, or can deviate to view.

Each leg is designed to be a good day's walking for the average walker and to have public transport options at the beginning and end where possible. The book includes a detailed mileage chart listing intermediate locations for each section to allow you to plan their own itinerary if preferred.

Each section chapter begins with practical information, including distance, start location with grid reference and post code, OS Explorer map sheet numbers, public transport, and pubs and refreshment locations. The book has been produced to a high standard with numerous excellent colour photographs and clear strip sketch maps with the route shown in red.
