2.0 out of 5 stars not what I expected 27 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as I am interested in doing some long distance walks, however when I got the book and decided which walk to do, I looked for it on the maps provided to give an idea of the area and location.
This is where I got totally lost, I could not find the reference number of the walk that was given, looked for ages for the reference number, no joy I have now given up looking for the ref number on the maps. The maps are far too overcrowded with numbers making it virtually impossible to find anything. It would have been far better if there more area maps with less crowding of numbers to make it easier to ring the number you are looking for?
In conclusion I have looked at far more books giving far more information, this one is far too complicated and time consuming.

this is a solid listing of over 600 long distance walks with a small bit of information on each such as what maps you need,a brief description and a book listing.this is not a walking guide full of hints and tips and techniques good for what it is

The official directory of the LDWA, the Long Distance walkers Association, for those who are "looking for a clear, and proven, walking route".
What you get is a listing of all official long distance paths, like Offa's Dyke Path or the Pennine Way, but also local ones like the Howdenshire Way or the Gordano Round. With eah walk comes info on the star/end points, which maps (Landranger and 1:25.000) apply, the waymarks (if any) like 'disc with Forest of Avon logo'; and the official website plus a listing of booklets/leaflets and their publishers. That's it - for 638 walks in total! There is also a list of useful addresses (17 pages) and a couple of pages with basic regional maps and all the paths therein, cross-referenced to the walk numbers of the main part of the book.
I like doing long walks, but did not find much useful in here; your mileage may vary!
