Heart of England Walks

Heart of England Walks

by: Roger Noyce
This book of Heart of England Walks gives fifty walking routes, which vary in length from 3 to 9 miles, all of which have been chosen for the variety of scenic countryside through which they pass. There is much for the walker to enjoy in the Heart of England in terms of both the historical and the natural environment. Part of the battleground in the early English wars, the region is home to some of the world's finest castles and ancient buildings. Later, the region was the setting for the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th centuries, and its canals have now become major leisure attractions. In addition, the region's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty encompass some of the most superb walking in the UK.

The routes offer lovely walking in the Shropshire Hills, the Staffordshire Moorlands, the Clent and Lickey Hills, the Malvern Hills, Shakespeare Country, the west of Oxfordshire and the north Cotswolds. The clearly described walks offer the opportunity to visit some of the famous historic towns, villages and buildings in the area. The author has selected walks within about an hour's travel of the centre of Birmingham so that easy access is assured.

Each walk entry begins with an overview of its features. This is followed by practical information giving distance, estimated time, refreshment options, starting location and car parking information, terrain and OS Explorer map sheet number. This is followed by detailed route finding instructions with a clear sketch map. Background information about features of interest is interspersed with navigation text, but printed in italics for differentiation.
