Format: Paperback
The Ribble Way is a well marked path as it is. However this book is useful because in certain places the detailed directions do provide that extra assurance as a guide. A common occurrence in particular is knowing which direction to cross fields or moors.

I feel the 3 star review elsewhere was rather critical but I can see how the small size of the text can be an issue. Though the book is a neat pocket size as it should be. I found it easy to follow and the historical and geographical aspects of the walk described between the text on directions provides an appreciable context to the walk. Personally I have limited interest in the local history but I think most walkers would want to know something and put some definition of the areas passed through.

The book provides succinct info related to planning the walk (divided into 7 sections). I suspect the book could do with revising at some point hopefully by the time of the new bridge over the River Douglas gets built which would add a further section to the walk.

I wanted a guide that would not only give me the route description, but also provide some background info on where to eat, sleep and get provisions for both.
This book almost gives me what I want. It is quite short which makes it easy to follow. It manages this by concentrating on giving information for a particular number of days.
I'm awkward and want to backpack/camp in a different number, so only 4 out of five stars.

As a guidebook I found this somewhat disappointing because in my opinion the layout is not user-friendly.

Full marks go to the authors, Dennis and Jan Kelsall, who have provided a good description of the route, and plenty of background information about what is to be seen en route. They have clearly done a lot of research which adds to the value of the book, and it is complemented by a number of interesting photographs taken by Dennis.

However, in my opinion, the publishers have spoiled this by presenting it in an undersized book, with a tiny typeface, and the route instructions all mixed up with the background information, to such an extent that they resorted to using black ink for the route detail and brown for the features, possibly in an attempt to help users find which is which. It would have been more sensible to have the maps and route details together at the front of each chapter, with the background information all together in the second part of the chapter.

In four of the seven chapters, the route map is surrounded by background information, not route directions, making it necessary to refer back, several pages, if you want to check the map as you progress along the walk. Not the best layout, particularly if using the book on a wet day. The book suggests users might also purchase the O.S. 1:25000 maps of the area, which rather defeats the object of buying the guidebook.

To the further detriment of the book, the publishers have adopted the "fashion" of having a wide blank margin on the narrative pages, reducing the narrative to just 54% of the page width. This margin occasionally contains a few comments, fine if you prefer reading top to bottom rather than left to right. These comments would have been better placed within the main text body.

Not done the full walk but will do one day, like the way it is broken down into sections some of which I have done as day walks. Easy to follow.
