Ceredigion and Snowdonia Coast Paths

Ceredigion and Snowdonia Coast Paths

by: John B Jones
By turns rugged and gently contoured, sweeping and intimate, exciting and atmospheric, the coast of Wales down Cardigan Bay, from the end of the Lleyn Peninsula Coastal Path to the start of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, makes for an inspiring walk. This guide covers the splendid and varied section of the Wales Coast Path along the Snowdonia coast, around the Dyfi Estuary and down the Ceredigion coast - a distance of 233km (145 miles).
The route follows long sandy beaches, high rugged cliffs and steep-sided cwms; you walk beside saltmarshes, stride over coastal plains, wander through the margins of Snowdonia's coastal hills and crunch along pebble storm beaches. And there are great views: on clear days, especially from the central parts of Cardigan Bay, you can see the whole sweep of the coast from Bardsey Island to Strumble Head, backed by the mountains of Snowdonia in the north and rolling green hills in the south.
There are beautiful inland routes around the estuaries of Traeth Bach and the Dyfi, many attractive settlements to pass through and much of historic interest. A fascinating geology is laid bare in the different rock strata and landforms, and there is a rich and immensely varied natural history.
This guidebook describes this route in 16 day stages from Porthmadog to St Dogmaels. The guidebook offers all the information walkers need to complete this 233km section of the Wales Coast Path that curves down Cardigan Bay, passing through a range of contrasting landscapes. It is also worth considering building in rest days in order to visit, for example, Harlech Castle, or ride on of the narrow gauge railways. With excellent public transport links, you don't have to tackle it all at once. It's easy to split into short breaks and day walks as suits your schedule. Background information on geology, history and the many points of interest along the way are included in the book together with coloured OS 1:50,000 map extracts and custom-drawn sketch maps plus practical details on facilities, accommodation and travel.

Walking in the Chilterns

by: Steve Davison
The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty heads north-east from the River Thames at Goring through Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

This 833-square kilometre area of southern England is criss-crossed by 2000 kilometres of straightforward, well-defined footpaths and bridleways, and the walks in this guide use many of them to offer excellent walking for most ages and abilities.
The walks take in many points of interest including Iron Age forts, picturesque villages of thatched-roof cottages and cosy pubs, stately homes, colourful gardens, medieval churches and market towns.

Walking in the Cotswolds

Walking in the Cotswolds

by:Damian Hall
Walking in the Cotswolds describes 30 circular walks set throughout the idyllic Cotswolds. Fourteen of the walks include parts of the Cotswold Way National Trail. The Cotswolds AONB has hills, woodlands and secret valleys, with plenty of remoteness, wilderness and epic views that show there is real hill walking country to be found. Honey-colour villages nestling between gentle, rounded hills confirm the Cotswold clichés are true, but they don't tell the whole story. Get to know the area and you'll also find remote and wild places, as well as epic views from the Edge, the dramatic escarpment which marks its western boundary.
This book describes a range of day walks, from gentle strolls to thigh-burning workouts, passing dramatic hill forts, barrows and stone circles and exploring Jurassic grasslands, beech woods and high ridges by turn. All of the walks are circular, between 4 and 12 miles long and are estimated to take from three to six hours. Each walk has detailed route finding instructions and are illustrated with coloured OS 1:50,000 map extracts and colour photographs. There is lots of information about history, geology and wildlife along the routes.
The Cotswolds provide fantastic walking options all year round: there are quieter routes included for summer; autumn sets the beech woods on fire; spring brings daffodils and bleating lambs and winter offers bigger views through denuded trees and quiet trails. Things not to miss are the wide views from the Edge - especially from the likes of the wildflower-dotted, Jurassic grasslands of Cleeve Common, Leckhampton Hill and Selsley Common, or from the dramatic hillforts of Uley Bury, Painswick Beacon and Crickley Hill; walks along the Cotswold Way; stone circles, atmospheric long barrows and remote-feeling valleys
The walk locations include: Evesham, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Tewkesbury, Winchcombe, Moreton-on-the-Marsh, Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Painswick, Stroud, Cirencester, Nailsworth, Dursley, Wotton-under-Edge, Tetbury, Malmesbury, Chippenham, Bristol, Bath and Bradford-on-Avon.

Severn Way - Cicerone

Severn Way - Cicerone

by: Terry Marsh
The Severn Way is a 338km (210-mile) walk through the Welsh borders. Beginning at the River Severn's source in Powys, mid-Wales, this guidebook gives all the information needed to enjoy walking the route. The Severn Way meanders through superb landscapes, interesting towns and villages before finishing near Bristol, in south-west England.
The River Severn, the UK's longest river, run from the heights of Plynlimon in mid-Wales down to the Bristol Channel at Severn Beach, through the historic counties of Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
As well as a largely downhill walk through peaceful landscapes such as the superb Hafren Forest, easily accessible from the pretty towns along the route, the Severn Way, which follows its course, is also a packed with historical and geographical interest. The Severn Way can take more than three weeks to walk. There is however, much to be said for tackling the Way over a number of visits. For example from the source at Plynlimon to Shrewsbury; Shrewsbury to Bridgenorth; Bridgenorth to Tewskesbury; Tewkesbury to Severn Beach,
Flowing through the most superb landscapes and past appealing towns and villages, the River Severn pulls together threads of history, trade, commerce, civil war and the lives of ordinary folk. That walkers should want to trace its course, its many twists and turns, is hardly surprising, not least because this is the longest river in the UK.
Divided into four sections that correspond with the four main counties (Powys, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire) through which the River Severn flows, this guidebook offers all the information walkers need to make the most of their backpacking trip, from source to sea. A full description of the official route, with an additional variant start over Plynlimon and route back to Bristol from Severn Beach and illustrated with OS 1:50,000 map extracts and plenty of background information about all the places passed along the way.
The best time to walk the Severn Way is between May and September which should avoid both the usual periods of flooding and the glutinous aftermath they bring. Any regular walker would find no difficulty following the Severn Way; once descended from the Hafren Forest and the upper Severn, then easy riparian loveliness ensues all the way to Severn Beach. Equipment and clothing for day walking is adequate, plus extra in the way of liquid and food.

Three Castles Walk

Three Castles Walk

by: Monmouthshire County Council
The Three Castles Walk is a circular route about 19 miles long. It takes the walker through an undulating landscape of wooded hillsides and hidden valleys in north east Monmouthshire. The countryside in this area retains a strong local identity with its fine tapestry of hedgerows, copses and woods; its maze of narrow lanes, tracks, bridleways and paths; its distinctive market towns, villages and hamlets; and its secluded historic farmhouses and churches.
The Three Castles Walk links the three Norman Castles of Skenfrith, White Castle and Grosmont.

The guide describes the walk in a clockwise direction in three sections, starting and finishing at Skenfrith. They are: Skenfrith to White Castle; White Castle to Grosmont; Grosmont to Skenfrith. Clear maps support the text, based upon OS 1:25,000 mapping.

Dorset Jubilee Trail

Dorset Jubilee Trail

by: Ramblers' Association Dorset Area
The Dorset Jubilee Trail is one of several long distance paths that owe their existence to the 60th anniversary of the founding of the Ramblers' Association. As its special project to celebrate this Jubilee in 1995, Dorset Area chose to create a 90 mile (145km) route across the county. The Trail was opened on 24th September 1995.
The Trail runs from Forde Abbey on the Somerset border in the west, across Dorset to Bokerley Dyke in the north-east on the Hampshire border. The route was devised to avoid existing trails and popular rights of way and to seek out the little known and little used paths in order to open them up for all to enjoy. The Trail winds through quiet villages, passing rural churches, and offers extensive views over the rolling downs and secret valleys that make Dorset so special. The Trail is supported by Dorset County Council and is waymarked.
The guide has comprehensive route finding instructions including grid references and highly detailed full colour contoured maps at a scale of 1:35,000 with the route clearly identified. There is also a lot of useful and anecdotal information about the places visited en-route plus some colour photographs of particularly notable places. There is a mileage chart listing towns and villages on the route to help with planning plus contact details to assist with arranging accommodation.
From Forde Abbey the guide describes the route in short sections with starting points at Coles Cross, Stoke Abbott, Mapperton, Toller Porcorum, Compton Barn, Little Bredy, Upwey, Winterborne Came, Moigne Combe Farm, Moreton, Bere Regis, Milton Abbas, Winterborne Stickland, Durweston, Tarrant Gunville, Chettle, Harley Gap, Cranborne.

Walking books which match an exhilarating ramble with a nearby pub serving good food and drink have become one of the most popular forms of footpath guides.

The 20 circular routes in this volume offer a wealth of places to see and explore including Worcester's Civil War battlefield; the picturesque Cotswold village of Broadway; reservoirs teeming with birds and other wildlife at Arley and Bittel; nature reserves at Windmill Hill in the Vale of Evesham and Long Meadow near Inkberrow; and the Malvern Hills and Wyre Forest. Other walks visit the 36 locks on the Worcester to Birmingham canal between Stoke Pound and Tardebigge; Shrawley Woods which supplied oak for the repair of the Houses of Parliament after the Second World War; the Severn Valley steam railway near Bewdley; and the Arrow Valley Country Park in Redditch. There is also the chance to discover a listed pub, a 300 year old inn and a thatched postbox.
Each walk description includes details on how to get to the start, where to park and where to stop for refreshments. The sketch maps have numbers which correspond with the numbered paragraphs in the text and there is information on the area's history, flora and fauna.
The 20 walk locations are: Castlemorton Common; Upton upon Severn; Broadway; Middle Littleton; Pershore; Croome; Northern Malvern Hills; Knightwick; Worcester; Inkberrow; Hanbury; Redditch; Bromsgrove; Shrawley Woods; Abberley Hill; Stourport; Chaddesley Corbett; Lickey Hills; Wolverley; Bewdley
