A walking guide by Manchester author Clarke Rogerson includes a route in and around Middleton, making it an ideal excuse to get out and about this spring. Each of the 35 walks in the book are close enough to home for Middletonians to try them all. Details for each route include information on the walk itself, such as difficulty and time needed, as well as practical information such as the nearest pub and railway station. --Middleton & North Manchester Guardian

There are some wonderful walks in this region. There are also some excellent hostelries. Usually the relaxation in a welcoming pub after an exhilarating walk has to be curtailed if you must drive home. This book solves the problem as the author has worked out a varied network of routes that can be accessed using the train network. Plus there are good cheap tickets.
I like the design of the book and the maps for every walk (OS) with routes overlaid. If you are into GPS you will really appreciate the waypoints provided for the routes. There is plenty of variety too - easier routes, tough routes, long routes, shorter routes, etc. Something for everyone who wants to walk.
This is an excellent book - heartily recommended.
Full colour presentation, good quality photographs, the latest OS maps, GPS information - all add up to a bright modern design common to the whole series of Discovery Walking Guides, which must set the standard for walking guides. A thoroughly enjoyable read, now time to get the boots dirty!
The idea that all of the walks can be accessed by purchasing a cheap 'Day Ranger' ticket for the train is a novel one but entirely practical, no worrying about your car being safe or having to limit yourself to only one well earned pint in the pub! The book is full of interesting facts and information which helped even this old Mancunian get to know more about the area. There are walks for every ability and all the walks are graded so you know just what you are letting yourself in for before you start. The pocket size and spiral binding is such a good idea meaning that you can have the pages needed for your walk easily visible without spoiling the book.
This is a thoroughly entertaining read, much more than a list of walks. I would recommend it to anyone.
