Suffolk Coast Walk

Suffolk Coast Walk

by: Peter Caton
Combining travel writing with a walking guide, Suffolk Coast Walk provides a wonderful insight into this fascinating county and is the companion book to Essex Coast Walk by the same author (available on Long Distance Paths/Essex Coast Walk page).
Peter Caton explores all 162 miles of Suffolk's unique coastline, describing the route for fellow walkers, with an engaging narrative that tells of the beauty, history and wildlife of this mysterious and varied coast. The reader is taken up and down Suffolk's remote creeks and rivers, past sandy beaches and huge expanses of shingle, through nature reserves, seaside resorts and tiny villages.
Throughout his journey, Peter uncovers many mysteries and considers the stories behind legends of Anne Boleyn, invading Germans, a half-man half-fish character, UFOs, Crazy Mary and bells tolling beneath the sea. He visits Suffolk's only island and takes a boat trip to investigate the secret world of Orford Ness.
More than 100 colour and black & white photos illustrate the story of the walk and the beauty and atmosphere of county's remarkable coast. With maps at the start of each chapter, this is a book for those who enjoy a short stroll, a longer ramble or simply wish to follow the coast from the comfort of an armchair.

Rutland Round

by: John Williams

The guide provides clear route directions, good sketch maps and is printed in full colour with many photographs illustrating places along the route.

The Mortimer Trail

The Mortimer Trail

by: Trevor Hulme and Abby Marshall
There can be few better places to walk in lowland England than in the Marches, the borderland country of England and Wales. This is where gentle pastures give way to steeply wooded slopes and open hill tops. Here you will find the Mortimer Trail, a 30 mile walking route from Ludlow to Kington which follows a succession of hills and ridges. It is so called because this was the heartland of the Mortimer family, holders of the most powerful of the Norman Earldoms. The trail passes through forests where tracts of broadleaved woodland give way to coniferous stands. The route descends from the high ridges to the water's edge of the Teme, Lugg and Arrow rivers where Kingfisher and Heron can be seen. Climbs are constantly rewarded by views of the Forest of Radnor, the Black Mountains, Clee Hills and the Malvern Hills.
The guide, printed on waterproof paper, describes the route in three sections supported by colour maps and photographs. There is a further section describing five additional loop walks branching off the Trail. Preliminary sections covering landscape, wildlife, ancient camps, Roman roads, and the Mortimer family put the Trail in context. The three sections are: Ludlow to Orleton Common; Orleton Common to Byton; Byton to Kington. The loop walks are at Yarpole; Wigmore; Lingen; Shobdon and Titley.

Sussex Ouse Valley Way

by: Terry Owen and Peter Anderson

Danelaw Way

Danelaw Way

by: Brett Collier
The Danelaw Way is a walk of around 60 miles through some of the loveliest and most peaceful countryside in Lincolnshire and Rutland. The walk connects Lincoln and Stamford, two 'burghs' of the ancient Danelaw. Although the route is mainly within Lincolnshire it does stray briefly into Rutland at a particularly attractive section associated with the John Clare, the poet.
The guide describes the route in five stages, varying from 9 to 14 miles. Two alternative routes are provided for the last stage to Stamford because Ramblers' Association members surveying the route could not agree which was the most attractive to be included in the book. It is an authoritative guide full of detail about the route that makes finding your way easy and enjoyable. Clear sketch maps linked to the text enable you to see exactly where you are en-route. The guide is full of interesting comments and historical detail about each area. The five stages are: Linclon to Aubourn; Aubourn to Caythorpe; Caythorpe to Ropsley; Ropsley to Castle Bytham; Castle Bytham to Stamford (two options). A circular walk from Ryhall is also included.
Brett Collier, the author of several walking guides listed on Walking Pages, died suddenly in March 2005. The Lincoln Group Ramblers' Association has taken on the task of publishing this book as a tribute and memorial to Brett who has done so much to promote walking in Lincolnshire.

Usk Valley Walk

Usk Valley Walk

by: Mike Wagstaff and John Wilkinson
The Usk Valley Walk is 48 miles long and runs from Caerleon, near Newport , in the south, to Brecon. The walk never strays very far away from the river and from Llanellen onwards, it utilises part of the towpath of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. The highest point reached is 1000ft above sea level: the amount of ascent and descent encountered is limited to a few short, sharp climbs. From its source on Fan Foel in the Brecon Beacons National Park the River Usk flows through Brecon along a broad valley separating the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. Below Crickhowell it crosses from the county of Powys into Monmouthshire. From Abergavenny it meanders past quiet hamlets and villages; the historic market town of Usk; the former Roman fortress of Isca, now Caerleon, entering the Severn estuary at Newport.
The guide describes the route in five sections, each with clear colour maps and detailed route finding instructions. The sections are: Caerleon to Usk; Usk to Llanellen; Llanellen to Llangattock; Llangattock to Aber (Talybont); Aber (Talybont) to Brecon. Preliminary sections cover the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, and practicalities of the walk.
