North Downs Way National Trail Guide

North Downs Way National Trail Guide

by: Colin Saunders
The North Downs Way follows the chalk ridge across South-East England for over120 miles, from the Hog's Back in Surrey all the way to the white cliffs of Dover. It is a magnificently varied, and surprisingly tranquil, journey; through beech and oak woodland, across springy downland, rising to sweeping vistas from viewpoints like Newlands Corner, St Martha's Hill and the Wye Downs, and following the Pilgrim's Way to the ancient cathedral of Canterbury.

This is the official National Trail Guide and this latest edition has been completely rewritten and re-designed from beginning to end, to include a wealth of new information, and turn a scenic walk inot a truly educative and enlightening experience. There are fascinating sections on the flora and fauna of the North Downs Way, and on the human history of the landscape, from the Battle of Britain to the Kent miners, as well as the ascents and descents, and the railway station links, for every section. The result is a complete companion to theTrail for today's walker.

The book describes the route in 15 section chapters. There is full colour Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer mapping of the entire route as well as comprehensive navigation instructions. Link routes to railway stations are also included throughout. Places of interest, refreshments, accommodation and public transport information is provided. There are sections on history, archaeology and wildlife plus plenty of colour photographs.
