Product description

Review

Anything written by Hunter Davies is crafted in an elegant, crisp and very readable English. He makes what might be called a dry-as-dust subject into a racy and interesting story. This sympathetic portrayal can only be the result of intense study abd research. Hunter is an historian of remarkable stature. || A charming and hugely entertaining travelling companion. || Charming account, part history, part guidebook and part personal experience. || Will appeal to both the armchair hiker and the real-world one! || Take off with Hunter Davies on a 'Walk Along the Wall'. His personal testament and guide to Hadrian's Wall and its starkly beautiful environs makes you want to leap from your armchair, as does its companion piece 'Walk Around the Lakes'.
