This is the official guide to the Shropshire Way, which consists of a northern and southern loop that both start in Shrewsbury. Each loop can be completed in a week or combined to form a two week 182 mile (290km) circuit that visits Stiperstones, Ludlow, Wenlock Edge, Ironbridge and the Wrekin. Split into 15 stages, this walk requires moderate fitness to cover the daily distance of 10 to 15 miles. The guide also includes the Stretton Skyline Walk, a 20 mile (32km) walk over Shropshire's peaks and ridges, which can be split over two days with an overnight stay in Church Stretton. For both the main route and the higher-level Stretton Skyline Walk, this guide provides in-depth route description and 1:50,000 OS mapping to aid navigation, along with information about accommodation, public transport and local services. The guide also offers plenty of insight into Shropshire's vibrant history and fascinating geology. The Shropshire Way visits some of England's most serene and beautiful scenery, as well as key historical sites including Ironbridge, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Through tranquil countryside and medieval market towns, this route explores all the best that the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB) has to offer.

A guidebook to the Cumbria Way, a 73-mile long distance path through the heart of the English Lake District from Ulverston to Carlisle. The route is largely low-level, but this book also describes alternative mountain days which add the Coniston Fells, Glaramara and Skiddaw en route. The guide divides the route into 5 stages of between 12 and 16 miles, but there is plenty of opportunity to plan your itinerary for a more easy-going 7 to 8 days. This guidebook also provides useful information for every stage, from accommodation to available facilities en route, as well as an annotated OS map and details on points of interest.

Best Day Walks in Snowdonia

Snowdonia is one of Britain's great mountain regions. Formed by ice and fire, these 'alps' of North Wales soar to a serrated skyline of rocky pyramids and ridges. Climbers have come here since the days of the early pioneers, but this is fine walking country too. John Gillham, who created the critically-acclaimed and comprehensive four-volume Pictorial Guides to the Mountains of Snowdonia for Frances Lincoln, has this time turned his attention to circular walks, suitable for families. Each of the 30 walks in the book has been graded from 1 to 5 for both technical difficulty and strenuousness. None of the walks contains any difficult or exposed scrambling, and the itineraries range from an easy-paced walk on the foothills above Bala to a steep rocky assault on Tryfan. By starting on the easier routes and working up through the grades, the book provides a good introduction for families and newcomers to mountain walking. Equally there are enough splendid outings in high mountain scenery to satisfy the most enthusiastic mountain lover.

This is the fourth of four volumes providing the most comprehensive coverage of the mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. The Southern Peaks encompases the ranges of Cadair Idris, which rises from the sandbars and surf of the Mawddach Estuary like great walls of splintered rock; the neighbouring Tarren and Dyfi Hills, where hard Ordovician rock meets soft Silurian shale, and the fine Aran ridges high above the fields and lake of Bala.

Although Snowdonia is not as prettily dressed up with pastures, oakwoods or cottage gardens as the Lake District and it's not as wild and spacious as Scotland, it shares many of the best attributes of both places - and in just the right measure. And yet, while the Lake District and Scotland have been well served by mountain guide books, there has never been a comprehensive illustrated guide to the mountains of Snowdonia. The Pictorial Guides to the Mountains of Snowdonia by John Gillham changes all that. Influenced in his early years by the works of Poucher and Wainwright, Gillham has adopted a unique style of 3D mapping that proved popular in his long-running TGO magazine series 'Way to Go'. In a brand new series of four books he uses the drawings to good effect, charting ascents up almost all the Snowdonian mountains, whether they be well-known or seldom-trod. The books are sumptuously illustrated by the author's colour photographs, which have been taken in all seasons and in all weather conditions. The Pictorial Guide to the Mountains of Snowdonia Vol 1 - the Northern Peaks is the first in the series of four books. This volume encompasses the Carneddau, the Glyderau and the Nantgwynant ranges. Mountains, famous and not-so-famous, large and not-so-large, are brought to life by the author's panoramic 3-D sketch maps. In the north the Carneddau are the Cairngorms of Wales, with a great expanse of long broad ridges rising from the Irish Sea. In the north they are remote, and a serene quietude reigns, while in the south the more celebrated peaks such as Carnedd Llewellyn are higher and more bouldery, with their northern faces scoured by glaciers into cliffs, crags and gullies. The Glyderau peaks face the Carneddau across Nant Ffrancon and the Llugwy valley. They're compact, rugged, and more random in their sculptural makeup: more Giacometti than Henry Moore. But all the great mountain features are here: corries, jagged spurs, tarns, ridges and waterfalls. Both the scrambler and the walker will be in their element. Less well known are the mountains of Nantgwynant, which lie to the east of Snowdon. Moel Siabod, the northern bastion, is a mighty peak with two fine ridges and a rocky spur providing a sporty ascent to the summit. The peaks to its south are knobbly, grassy in some places: heathery in others, and have jewel-like tarns made secretive by the rocky bluffs that protect them from the elements. Northern Snowdonia awaits your discovery….
