The Chilterns: A Dog Walkers Guide, Ruth Paley - Here is a collection of 20 tried and tested circular routes chosen for walkers with dogs. They include crucial dog factors such as livestock, stiles and roads, with warnings in advance when a lead is necessary and when it's safe to run free. There are also contact details for the nearest vets and recommended dog friendly pubs and cafes. Clear numbered route directions and a corresponding map for each route keep walkers on the right track and there are plenty of opportunities for dogs to roam safely off lead. The routes vary in length from 2½ to 5½ miles and provide a great introduction for dogs and their owners to the stunning Chilterns countryside. There are walks through beech woods, including at Great and Little Missenden; waterside walks by reservoirs near Tring, chalk streams, and the Wendover Arm; and bracing routes along the tops of hills at Ivinghoe, Dunstable Downs and West Wycombe. Many of the routes explore National Trust beauty spots; through ancient woodland and downland in the Ashridge Estate; in the rolling parkland of Hughenden; and high up on chalk and grassland at Whipsnade and Totternhoe. Published April 15.

The walks pass through typical picturesque English villages, glorious countryside with stunning views -England at its best. They pass by local village pubs, old churches, and village ponds. Country lanes, hills, valleys, woods, and streams are a feature in an area that has often been used in well-known films and TV series. Walks can be extended by combining more than one walk, or walks can be intersected at crossover points between walks. Some walks pass through nature reserves; others pass by the grounds of stately homes. The book is for the newcomer to walking as well as the experienced walker. Published February 12.  K
