Walks through History in the Heart of England

Walks through History in the Heart of England

by: Roger Seedhouse
The Heart of England is rich in history, both ancient and more modern, and the twenty-four walks in this book offer the enquiring walker many intriguing glimpses of a bygone age; with Iron Age forts, battle sites, medieval castles and even a Second World War camp. Most are based on English Heritage sites, but others are included because of their particular interest.
Walking distances vary from 3 miles to 13.5 miles (although this longer one can be divided up to create two seperate walks). All of them start at, or pass through, places of historical interest that will add greatly to your appreciation of a day out in beautiful walking countryside. Most have good pubs en route. The clear route descriptions are supported by sketch maps and some illustrations, and there is additional information about the historical places visited. Locations include the Manifold Valley, Cannock Chase, Boscobel, Wenlock Priory, Clun Castle, Stokesay, Croft Castle, Harvington Hall, Malvern Hills, Broadway, Kenilworth Castle, Edge Hill and Hailes Abbey amongst many others.
