Walks into History - Warwickshire

Walks into History - Warwickshire

by: John Wilks
The lively and informative routes in this guide will take you on a journey through history, passing sites of ancient monuments, Saxon settlements, Norman castles, Civil War battlefields, historic towns, and places associated with important figures from the past.

The fourteen circular walks explore some of the most beautiful countryside in England. They vary in length between 3 and 8 miles and are suitable for walkers of all ages and fitness levels. Information such as how to get to the start, where to park and where to stop for refreshments is given. The sketch maps include numbers which correspond with the numbered paragraphs in the text so that you can see at a glance where you are. The book is illustrated with colour photographs and each walk chapter begins with an historical background of the features to be explored.

Among the places visited are the mysterious Rollright Stones of Long Compton; the impressive Saxon church at Wootton Wawen; the site of Beaudesert Castle at Henley-in-Arden; the historic towns of Warwick and Stratford; the superb Tudor Charlecote House; the picturesque medieval moated manor of Baddesley Clinton; and the Grand Union Canal at Hatton with its spectacular flight of locks.
