Now I can't wait to do them all - living in London can sometimes get me down as we're all so penned in and crowded, an hour on the train and suddenly the whole world is transformed to a beautiful sweeping landscpape of green fields and lonely trees all under a brooding grey January sky.
I've noticed that some reviews complain (about volume 1) that some of the walks aren't circular but half of the beauty of these walks is the train journey out of London with a coffee on a Sunday morning and watching as all the urban area fizzles away to the beauty of the countryside. Most (all?) non-cicular walks end up at a train station.
I recommend this book (and volume 1) as the perfect stress buster to busy London life and has renewed my waning enthusiasm for England as a beautiful place to live.
most of the walks are car-friendly (several circular walks, or for linear walks, you can catch a train 1 or 2 stops back to the start)
many of the walks have shorter options for new walkers
the book's website, www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_2 has
- OS maps you can print,
- downloadable GPS data for your smartphone / gps device
- photos and videos of the walk to give you an idea
- several new options (e.g. a new start or finish)
- updates and feedback
there is also a volume 1 with 53 walks
There is a website linked to the book, which provides much of the information in the book - but not enough to make the book redundant. The main advantage of the website - http://www.walkingclub.org.uk/book_2/ - is that it provides the overall travel instructions in easy to print, clear sets of steps and using information which has been updated since the book came out.
The walks are not short - there's only two at 5 miles or under, and plenty that are over 10 miles.
I must admit that I haven't done any of the walks however comment on those which is reflected in my rating.
