Heart of England Hill Walks

Heart of England Hill Walks

by: John Newson
The 18 circular walks in this collection explore many of the hills in the Heart of England; some well known, others that may be less familiar. They include the high open moorlands of Staffordshire, some of the more remote hills of Shropshire and, in Gloucestershire, parts of the ever popular Cotswolds. Worcestershire and Warwickshire are also well represented, including the magnificent Malverns as well as more modest, but very scenic hilltops.
Some of the walks provide vigorous ascents; some are more gentle, and some are easy. All, however, give excellent views in an area of fine countryside that is interspersed with beautiful villages, attractive architecture and historic buildings. The distances of the main walks vary from 10.5 to 14.5 miles. However, most include the option of a shorter walk and these range between 6 and 10 miles. Clear sketch maps accompany the text.
The walk locations are: Butterton and the Hill; Alrewas and Battlestead Hill; The Long Mynd; The Cluns; Illey and Waseley Hill; Chaddesley Corbett; Hanbury and Pipers Hill; Elmley Castle and Bredon Hill; The Malverns; Bosbury and Oyster Hill; Henley-in-Arden and The Mount; Shakespeare villages and Oversley Hill; The Tysoes and Edge Hill; The Hidcotes and Ilmington Down; The Guitings; The Westcotes and Icomb Hill; Cold Aston; The Coberleys and Leckhampton Hill.
