Walks from Kirknewton

Walks from Kirknewton

In a series of eight walks the author explores both the history and the nature of this edge of the wildest range of hills in England. Here the walker is in the minority, outnumbered by the wild goats, roe deer and mad march hares.

Starting from Kirknewton, this collection of walks includes gentle strolls along the valley bottom as well as more strenuous expeditions onto the higher tops surrounding the village. Within this book there is a walk for everybody whatever their ability or inclination.
