5.0 out of 5 stars a great little find, 10 July 2011
This review is from: Day Walks on the South Downs: 20 Circular Routes in Hampshire & Sussex (Paperback)
The first great thing about this book is the size, it fits comfortably in any coat pocket. The walks are cleverly described using some wonderful photos. Deirdre has once again shown a great ability to provide the reader with some great local knowledge.
I found it extremely helpful to have the map references included in the introduction so that I could check the details before starting off.
I am looking forward to doing all 20 walks over the next few months

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic addition to your walking book library, 13 July 2011
This review is from: Day Walks on the South Downs: 20 Circular Routes in Hampshire & Sussex (Paperback)
This book is a perfect addition to anyone who enjoys walking on the South Downs. It contains 20 interesting walks, all of which have maps and detailed descriptions. The walks are spread around the South Downs well and there is a good range of length and difficulty.

Inspiring photography helps suggest walks that are off the beaten track in the newest National Park, and the short introductions to each walk often contain facts and interesting details about the area around the walk.

The routes themselves are clear and the descriptions easy to follow, while enough latitude is given to the reader to explore interesting optional routes.

Finally, the size is perfect for slipping into a pocket, meaning it can be kept at hand for easy reference.

As I said above, a great addition to your walking book library and one that I'll use for many years to come.

This review is from: Day Walks on the South Downs: 20 Circular Routes in Hampshire & Sussex (Paperback)
I've only done one walk from this book so far but was very impressed. The routes have a good variation between the downs and lowland countryside and there are plenty of short cuts on longer walks if you don't want to do the full distance. Directions are extremely clear even when the paths on the ground are not so there is little chance of getting lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day Walks on the South Downs, 17 July 2011
This review is from: Day Walks on the South Downs: 20 Circular Routes in Hampshire & Sussex (Paperback)
Well written, easy to understand - a perfect introduction to explore the best scenery in the South Downs. Each walk is well thought out, described in detail and imposed onto an Ordnance Survey map for clarity, allowing you to appreciate the full features and topography of the landscape around you.

A helpful summary of distance, total ascent, grid reference, expected time, OS map reference, refreshment stops and navigation tips, introduce each walk. A good walker could complete the walks in a third to half the time stated.

Two walks down and eighteen to go. I look forward to completing them all.

This review is from: Day Walks on the South Downs: 20 Circular Routes in Hampshire & Sussex (Paperback)
If you want to do sections of the South Downs as day walks, then this up to date and well scripted guide allows you to do some varied circular walks and cover a section of the SDW at the same time.
The descriptions are very clear and so far the was have been varied and rewarding.
