This work provides a complete description of the route divided into fifteen chapters, each covering one day's walk. It includes: a 1:25 000 Ordnance Survey mapping marked with points of interest along the route; full colour photographs throughout; background information on local history, wildlife, archaeology and landscape; and comprehensive useful information section. This 100-mile (160-km) route is Britain's newest National Trail and will officially open in spring 2007. Starting in the picturesque village of Chipping Camden, it takes the walker through a landscape of steep escarpments, bare plateaux and wooded valleys, passing a number of important historical sites en route, before descending into the Severn Valley and ending at the city of Bath. Whether you are walking the trail from end to end or exploring a part of it, you will find this easy-to-use guide indispensable.
