Ancient Tracks: Walking Through Historic Britain, Des Hannigan

An excellent book which covers 17 walks in the UK from Cornwall to Scotland. The photos are very good but not always of features that close to the walks. The maps are functional but a good OS map is needed. The walks range considerably in difficulty some steep and requiring a decent level of fitness other more gentle. Historical background for each walk is detailed and very interesting; covering information about an area you may have walked in for years without knowing the history.
