Ramble On - The Story of Our Love for Walking Britain (Paperback): Sinclair McKay Ramble On - The Story of Our Love for Walking Britain (Paperback)

R253 R175 Discovery Miles 1 750 Save R78 (31%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This fascinating ramble through the history of walking delves into our relationship with the British countryside. `Ramble On' tells the story of how country walks were transformed from a small and often illegal pastime to the most popular recreational activity in the country. From the brave band of hikers who scaled the off-limits peak Kinder Scout in 1932, via the intricate Lake District guides of Alfred Wainwright, to the resistant landowners (including the notorious Nicholas Van Hoogstraten, Madonna and Jeremy Clarkson) who have done their level best (and worst) to keep walkers off their land - this is the definitive history of rambling. Perfectly capturing the sense of exhilaration on reaching the summit of a blustery hill-top path, `Ramble On' is for anyone who has ever pulled on a pair of walking boots or is partial to the taste of Kendal mintcake.

365 inspirational suggestions for enjoying nature. These 'Random Acts of Wildness' will encourage you to fall in love with, learn about or even help wildlife and wild places near you.

The best Random Acts of Wildness immerse you (if only for a few seconds) in nature, setting your senses alight. Smelling freshly fallen rain, tasting the sweet explosion of a fresh blackberry as you pop it in your mouth, wriggling your toes in the icy waters of a stream, waking up to bird song.

Much of central Dartmoor is an uninhabited wilderness almost free of villages, farms, trees and roads making it outstanding environmental value. From this mass rise Dartmoor's rivers, including the Lyd, Tavy, East and West Dart, Bovey, Teign, Taw and Okement, nearly all of which flow southwards to the English Channel. The large numbers of tors that dominate Dartmoor are the remnants of hard masses of granite, drastically reduced in size and moulded into their present shapes by millions of years of weatherings. Bowerman's Nose, Hound Tor and Haytor Rocks are famous examples included on these walks.

This is Book 5 in the exciting new series of full-colour "Pocket Walks", being small, practical sized guidebooks aimed at the less serious rambler. Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area. Principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length (though averaging 4 miles each, they are all very definitely worthwhile outings), making them ideal for families, leisure walkers, and others constrained by either time or other limitations. Concise route descriptions are complemented by ample background information. This title deals with Malhamdale, one of the most popular areas of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Twenty superb walks use starting points such as Malham, Rylstone, Gargrave and Embsay. Places visited include Malham Cove and Tarn, Gordale Scar, Embsay Crag and Airton. This title is launched in unison with 3 other neighbouring Yorkshire Dales titles, covering Nidderdale, Upper Wharfedale and Lower Wharfedale.

Many people are familiar with London's River Thames, but the city has much more to offer when it comes to waterways, including a wealth of canals, minor rivers (most are tributaries of the Thames), lakes and reservoirs that offer tranquil and beautiful walks. Many waterways have dedicated walking and cycling paths alongside them, notably the Thames Path which follows the entire course of the river, and London's canals, where the former towpaths along which horses towed the canal boats are now reserved for walkers and cyclists. London's minor rivers - secret waterways - are not always so easy to follow, as they wend their way along streets, through parks and even underground, but are a wonderful way to get off the beaten track and commune with nature. Most walks are between 3 and 7 miles in length, with the average around 41/2 miles. However, it's best to allow a half day for the shorter walks and as much as a full day for the longer walks - particularly if you plan to partake of the many excellent pubs, restaurants and caf s along the routes (for your author, a good lunch is a prerequisite of a good walk) - not to mention the many diversions along the way, such as museums, galleries and churches. Our aim was to take the 'scenic route', visiting as many interesting landmarks as possible, rather than simply getting from A to B. Writing London's Waterside Walks has been a fascinating, edifying and enjoyable adventure. We hope that you enjoy these walks as much as we did; all you need is a comfortable pair of shoes, a sense of adventure - and this book!

This guidebook describes 25 coastal and inland day walks covering the whole of the county of Essex, stretching from the Lea Valley in the west and the Thames in the south over to the North Sea and up to the River Stour in the north. Walks range from 4 to 18 miles and are mostly circular. Also included is a description of the Essex Way which crosses the county in 11 stages from Manor Park, on the fringes of London, to the port of Harwich - a distance of 96 miles. The walks are suitable for all abilities and there are shorter alternatives for many of the longer routes. With a huge variety of scenery and walking landscapes, Essex surprises and delights in equal measure. It boasts a 350-mile coastline (which, away from the busy seaside resorts, is barely known), numerous estuaries and river valleys, great and ancient forests, and more green lanes than any other English county except Dorset. Each walk is described step-by-step, illustrated with OS map extracts and packed with historical, and geological information about the landscape the route passes through.

R277 R183 Discovery Miles 1 830 Save R94 (34%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Joe Simpson, with just his partner Simon Yates, tackled the unclimbed West Face of the remote 21,000 foot Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in June 1995. But before they reached the summit, disaster struck. A few days later, Simon staggered into Base Camp, exhausted and frostbitten, to tell their non-climbing companion that Joe was dead. For three days he wrestled with guilt as they prepared to return home.

Then a cry in the night took them out with torches, where they found Joe, badly injured, crawling through the snowstorm in a delirium. Far from causing Joe's death, Simon had paradoxically saved his friend's life. What happened, and how they dealt with the psychological traumas that resulted when Simon was forced into the appalling decision to cut the rope, makes not only an epic of survival but a compelling testament of friendship.

The Yorkshire coastline is the second most visited tourist destination in England - so why no walking guide to its entire length? The Trail Guides published by, for example, Aurum, and other walking publishers like Cicerone, sell steady numbers of guides to the Northumberland Coast Path, let alone National Trails like the South-West Coast Path. But why no guide to Yorkshire's coastline? Some of it comes under the Cleveland Way, though this is predominantly a walking route across the North York Moors. But from Redcar all the way south to Bridlington, and then on along Spurn Point on the Humber, is magnificent clifftop and seaside walking. The route takes in scenic holiday hotspots like Whitby, Scarborough, Filey and Robin Hood's Bay, not to mention steam railways, seabird cliffs and the home of Dracula. Now Andrew Vine, an experienced walker and distinguished Yorkshire journalist, puts this right with the definitive walking guide, full of colour photos, and the whole route covered with OS large-scale maps. It is an essential purchase for the holidaymaker, the daytripper and local resident alike.
