Heritage Discovery Walks in the Midlands

Heritage Discovery Walks in the Midlands

by: Peter Groves
Britain has a rich historical heritage and the 21 walks in this book, as well as taking you through some of the fine Midlands countryside also present opportunities to visit castles, battlefields, nature reserves, museums, churches and cathedrals; to admire fine architecture and to explore some historic towns. There are also some excellent pubs, many with interesting histories. Each of the walks has an historic theme and plenty of fascinating information is provided as you proceed along the route.

Most of the walks offer you a choice of longer or shorter routes, the latter giving more time to explore a castle, a museum, or other features during or at the end of your walk. There are walks in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Leicestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Some are easy and will present no difficulties for the average walker; some, in the hilly areas, are more strenuous. They are all circular and accessible by public transport. The shortest is 2.5 miles and the longest 11 miles. Clear directions, sketch maps and practical information are provided for all the routes.
