The route is broken down into manageable days of approximately 9-15 miles, with basic route description interspersed with notes on sites of historical, geological and wildlife interest and alternative routes that enable short visits to additional key locations just off the official Path.
This full-colour guide, the product of extensive research by two professional Rights of Way Surveyors, contains over 80 attractive hand-drawn maps as well as over 30 spectacular photographs. It is also produced in a practical pocket-guide size, similar to the dimensions of the standard OS guides.
Each day's walk within the book has been carefully and thoroughly prepared by the authors in order to maximize the availability of local public transport, parking and accommodation options (camping and B&Bs).
