Walking the Wales Coast Path, Paddy Dillon - The Welsh Coast Path, at 870 miles is the longest trail in Britain, tracing the coastline from Chester to Chepstow. This guidebook divides the Path into 9 geographical areas and 57 stages, ranging between 15 to 32km in length. Full of variety; from cities and castles to sandy beaches, tiny harbours to the crash of waves against rugged cliffs, the route offers new sights at every point. Never straying far from the sea, or climbing higher than 300m, the trail can nevertheless offer strenuous walking as well as gentle rambles. Alongside detailed route descriptions and maps for each stage, the guidebook provides a range of practical information, whether you plan to walk the Wales Coast Path in full, or as a series of day-walks. Travel information, advice on accommodation and planning, as well as details on the history, wildlife and geology of the coast ensure that this is an ideal companion to uncovering the Welsh coast on foot.

Wales: A Walk Through Time, Brian E Davies - Using a historical perspective to enrich the journey, Wales: A Walk Through Time describes a unique walk through a remarkable country. Illustrated with a fascinating collection of old photographs and contemporary images, the route has been specially chosen to explore the beauty and history of Wales. In this third and final part, the walk reaches Anglesey and we are treated to the glorious landscapes and proud heritage of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park. The walk begins at the great castle of Harlech and follows an upland route to the Vale of Ffestiniog. The walk continues to the magical village of Portmeirion and the coastal town of Porthmadog before passing through the spectacular Pass of Aberglaslyn to reach Beddgelert. We ascend Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, before continuing to historic Caernarfon, then follow the Menai Strait to Bangor with its lovely pier and cathedral. Walking over Telford's great suspension bridge we finally reach the Isle of Anglesey where the Coastal Path is followed to Beaumaris and through beautiful coastal scenery to reach Cemaes Bay and the northernmost point in Wales. Along the way, we visit prehistoric sites, medieval castles and ancient churches and explore the history of slate quarrying and copper mining. Great events of Welsh history are recalled and the reader is given a real sense of how the past is present at every step. Each chapter covers an attractive section of the walk, full-colour maps show the way, and some welcoming hostelries are discovered en route. But this is not only a guide for walkers: the rich history and images within will have the broadest appeal. Published May 14.

Published July 09 Undiscovered Wales: 15 Circular Walks, Kevin Walker - Even while rambling in the most rugged and remote parts of Wales, one is liable to stumble upon some mysterious link with the past - a ruined building, a track that leads nowhere, an obviously man-made hole in the ground. All these pose questions that insist on an answer. Mountain expert Kevin Walker has spent hundreds of days tramping the Welsh mountains and moorlands and has uncovered the stories behind some of these special places, which are rich not only in landscape and scenery, but also in heritage and people, myth and legend, past lives and long-forgotten tales. In Undiscovered Wales he presents fifteen one-day circular walks, of varying degrees of difficulty, that pass through locations rich in history. Some walks pass through areas connected with legend, such as the cave where Merlin overdid his spell and unfortunately killed the person he was trying to save. Others captivate with more modern tales, such as the origins of Macnamara's road, or the desperately sade story of little Tommy Jones, aged five. In addition to be background information, each of the walks is described in full with photographs, details of the terrain and sketch maps. Limited availability. Published March 10.
