Book Description

1 Mar 2003 British Long-distance Trails
This new full-colour guide to Britain's best-known and often challenging long-distance walk has all the essential information to help you plan and complete the trip. Whether the route is tackled in its entirety over two to three weeks or enjoyed in several short 'bites', this up-to-date guide gives you all the facts on terrain, mileage, maps, accommodation, transport, etc., as well as a comprehensive description of each section of the walk and its points of interest. A list of interconnecting trails makes it possible to devise any number of circular or linear walks using parts of the Pennine Way. The guide is illustrated throughout with the author's own photographs and sketchmaps. The Pennine Way begins, wholly appropriately, in the centre of England, historically the heartland of the country's outdoor movement. Ringed by motorways and the industrial conurbations of Sheffield, Derby, The Potteries, Manchester and Huddersfield, the 542 square miles (140,000 hectares) of the Peak District National Park contain some of the wildest and loveliest countryside in Britain. This guide has divided the Pennine Way into 16 stages, each ending at a place where accommodation is available. The stages are mostly equivalent to a day's walking, though a few may seem rather on the short or long side. Heading each stage are useful statistics: the distance involved; the main ascents; places on or near the route where refreshments and provisions may be found; access to public transport, if any; types of accommodation on offer; and the OS maps (both Landranger and Outdoor Leisure) covering the stage.

5.0 out of 5 stars a smashing book 13 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
A cracking guide, with a good review of the route as well as some details of local history & nearby landmarks. The trail is easy to follow using the book, which is a massive plus. In comparison with the necessary OS maps this is all you need. Waterproof cover as well, making the book even more useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been good. 13 July 2009
By 29
Format:Paperback
It should have been made clear that this is a sort of touristy guide and not a walker's guide. There is far too much history and touristy information acting as fillers, surely if you insist on having it could be placed in a separate section. Also, what is this fixation with photographs which for walkers are just an interrupting nuisance when trying to follow a map and the appropriate text. Drastically reduce this book and give more detail on the maps of places that are referred to in the text and also, in the text be more specific about distances.
I would recommend anyone wanting a walking guide to look elsewhere.
