Short Walks in Dorset

Short Walks in Dorset

by: David Perrott and Laurence Main
This full colour guidebook contains 20 easy walks of 5 miles or less exploring the stunning coastal scenery and beautiful rural countryside of Dorset. The Area is famous for the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which features land forms such as the sublime Lulworth Cove, the impressive shingle tombolo of Chesil Beach and the great natural arch of Durdle Door. The guide is one of a series produced in cooperation with the Ramblers and features full colour OS Explorer mapping, making route finding straightforward.

The book begins with a useful introductory chapter describing the region including its geology and wildlife and outlining the walking highlights and practicalities. Each walk chapter gives a short descriptive overview followed by detailed route finding instructions. A side panel provides practical information including distance, time, terrain, and starting grid reference. Additional numbered text boxes cross referenced to the OS map describe features of interest along the way. There are also lots of colour photographs illustrating the walks.
