The Footpath Way in Gloucestershire by Algernon Gissing
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally published in 1924, this is a delightful exploration of north Gloucestershire by way of its many footpaths. The author, Algernon Gissing, passes through towns and villages, over rivers and across fields, commenting on the history of buildings, recounting conversations with people he meets, and observing animals and birdsong particular to the area. As he reflects on the various villages and landmarks in the area, Gissing paints a picture of this very English landscape. Recounting village life with fondness, he captures the spirit of the county's people and their day-to-day errands. As well as illustrating the heart of the county, Gissing describes the individuality of the places he passes through. From the Stonesfield slates of Guiting to the lonely rolling uplands around Birdlip, he recounts a striking land of contrasts.

Author Biography

Algernon Gissing was the lesser-known brother of George, however he published more than 30 books in his lifetime. He worked for a time as a solicitor before following in his brother's footsteps and trying his hand at literary fame. Correspondence between the brothers suggests that at some point Algernon settled with his wife in Broadway, where the Gloucestershire countryside inspired his writing. The Footpath Way in Gloucestershire was the last book Algernon wrote before he died at 77.
