5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Walks - a classic walking book! 11 Jan 2009
Dating from 1982, Ken Wilson's Classic Walks followed The Big Walks and preceded Wild Walks. The routes featured are substantial mountain daywalks, but less challenging than the monster outings featured in 'The Big Walks'. Back in 1982, these books were a revelation, with big exciting photos many of them in colour! The text is also less flat and dreary than in earlier books such as the rather ponderous Poucher.
That today they look a little drab and dated is purely down to the big step up in standards that they themselves induced for this sort of book. The walks are still good ones, the outfits are historic for students of costume (remember knee-breeches?). Many of the contributors are famous names of their day.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic Walks 7 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this when it was first published, but alas through the passage of time and moving house more than once it got lost somewhere.

Graet armchair book or for reading in front of the fire on a wet night. Accurate descriptions by people who have been there and got the t shirt.

Great book and a classic amongst mountaineers. Unfortunately my first edition had 28 pages missing!! So all the English walks were missing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A FINE CATALOGUE OF DAYS OUT 5 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Whilst I am more of a climber I have spent a large number of my days on the hills and there is little doubt that the routes featured in Classic Walks are some first rate expeditions. Whilst there is inevitably a debate on the pros and cons of the 3 walking books in the series I would suggest that Classic Walks is what it says on the tin - the walks that have stood the test of time (and some are showing it!) Has the book stood the test of time? In general terms yes. Whilst more modern books have perhaps a better layout and less wearing of the metaphorical red socks in the pictures there is all one needs to know and the guest writer format works well. This book should be on the bookshelf of every keen hill goer.
