Product Description

From the Publisher

What better way to enjoy the diverse scenery, terrain and fascinating history within the boundaries of so many different counties than to walk The Midshires Way? A 225-mile (360km) footpath and bridleway crosses Middle England, linking the Ridgeway in Buckinghamshire with the Trans-Pennine Trail at Stockport in Greater Manchester. It passes through the counties of Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and the metropolitan area of Greater Manchester.
Generally the Way follows public footpaths and bridleways, and quiet country lanes. The terrain is pleasant yet undemanding and therefore suitable for any walker. It starts and ends at railway stations and can be walked as easily in either direction.
The Way is divided into 17 sections (each between 10 and 14 miles - a nominal day's walk) with detailed descriptions of readily available accommodation at the end of each section. There is also information about how the Way came into being, the terrain, route descriptions, sketch maps, illustrations and advice for cyclists and equestrians.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was a second hand book (in very good condition). The Midshires way has been completed since it was written to include the New Mills Millenium Walkway,at the very end of the route, which isn't included in the book. More feedback after walking it!
