The Trail runs for 55 kilometres/34 miles along Cheshire’s beautiful and varied central sandstone ridge between Frodsham, on the Mersey Estuary in the north, and Whitchurch, just over the border in Shropshire, in the south. Along the way you'll pass two castles, some amazing views, black-and-white country pubs, a vast ancient forest, canals and pretty rural villages. Plus plenty of wildlife. What more could you want? Compiled and tested by seasoned walkers and local experts, this comprehensive, full colour guide is the perfect companion for weekend strollers and dedicated long-distance walkers alike.
  • The ten best circular hill walks in the area. Classic easy summits include Conic Hill, Duncryne and Ben A’an. Perfect panoramas, breathtaking views and a wealth of wildlife.
  •   An impressive guide book that coincides with the growing interest in pilgrimage as an aspect of ‘wellness’ tourism that benefits body, mind and spirit. The guide is packed with information both practical and historical. It is an attractive publication with OS map extracts and numerous high quality colour photos. The Two Saints Way has a symmetrical structure with the two cathedrals at either end, Stoke Minster in the middle and two churches dedicated to St Mary at the quarter points. With this in mind, the 92 mile route is divided into four colour coded sections - 1: Chester to Nantwich, 2: Nantwich to Stoke, 3: Stoke to Stafford and 4: Stafford to Lichfield. Each section is further divided into four stages of between 3.5 and 8.5 miles in length. The route is described in both directions. Highlights on this varied route include Beeston Castle, Englelsea Brook Chapel and Museum, the Staffordshire Hoard at the Potteries Museum, Trentham Gardens and Cannock Chase Area of outstanding Natural Beauty. The guide contains a wealth of fascinating information on many features of interest.
  • This book is a new and wholly updated edition of the popular, full-colour, handy sized guide to all of Snowdon’s recognised routes of ascent – from the six ‘Classic Paths’ to the many lesser known and less frequented routes.

    by Dennis Kelsall This superbly-written and good looking book will take you on ten short circular walks to the very best stretches of coast, pubs, tea shops, and viewpoints that the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast, in West Wales, has to offer. Defining the south-westernmost tip of Wales, Pembrokeshire’s coastline is arguably the most beautiful and varied in the British Isles. Virtually all of it lies within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Relative isolation has left it largely untouched by modern development and most of its length is a wild frontier where the endless confrontation between sea and land is played out. Long stretches of coast face the fury of Atlantic storms and weakness and faults in the high cliffs are eroded into caves, coves and inlets. However, the harder rock, some of which is 700 million years old, resists the onslaught and stands out in rugged promontories and headlands. Elsewhere, sheltered landings and harbours, fine beaches and secluded bays reveal other aspects of this glorious landscape. In spring and summer the cliff tops break out in the pink, blue, white and yellow of countless flowers and sea crags are alive with nesting birds, while some of Britain’s largest seal populations arrive in autumn to give birth. It was this wild beauty that prompted the establishment of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in 1952. Despite being one of the UK’s smaller National Parks, it embraces a third of the county including all the offshore islands, the Daugleddau estuary, and the Preseli Hills. The Park is also home to the popular Pembrokeshire Coast Path — now part of the larger Wales Coast Path.  Discover dramatic coastlines at St Davids Head and Strumble Head, Manorbier and Tenby. Climb to lofty coastal panoramas at Carn Ingli and Carn Llidi. Enjoy characterful waterside pubs at Porthgain and Cresswell Quay. Or relax over a quiet cup of coffee or tea and cake at two of Pembrokeshire’s cosiest and most welcoming tea shops and cafés.  Unmissable.    
  • by Dennis Kelsall This attractive and good looking book will take you on ten short circular walks to some of the finest and most iconic views and viewpoints along the rugged Pembrokeshire coast, in West Wales. For some hillwalkers, the ‘view’ is only achieved on attaining the summit. But here, the endless convolutions of the coastline create an ever changing scene, both in front and behind; with every step shifting the perspective, bringing something different into sight. While the distant view can stretch for miles, inlets, coves and bays may remain hidden, only revealing themselves at the last moment. More immediately, the cliffs are broken by crevices, ledges, caves and natural arches, while just offshore are stacks and wave-washed shoals. Behind, the hinterland is a patchwork of hill, common and agriculture, while the vista out to the sea is endlessly changed by the weather, tide and hour. And, where accessible, the prospect from the beach is different again. Memorable walks to unmissable views.
