This is just a short update to say that I have received a review copy of Christopher Somerville’s Britain’s Best Walks for review from HarperColins Publishing.
The intent is to try out some of the book’s walks in the new year and then post up a full review.
The book is arranged by area of the country. Within each of those sections are numerous detailed walks, each with full colour maps, photos and extensive notes about the locale.
In many respects this kind of book is a god-send.
When planning walks, one inevitably ends up popping to the most popular places, with the end result that a lot of great locations are missed.
This book provides 200 single day excursions, many of which are in places that are off the beaten track. As a result I’m hoping to visit many locales that I might have otherwise missed.
Look for a full review in the new year.
