Many of Britain's finest walks are along tracks that have been in use thousands of years. The 18 routes featured here include prehistoric ridgeways, Roman roads such as Ackling Dyke in Dorset, and routes with religious origins, such as the Saints Way across Cornwall.
Many of Britain's finest walks are along tracks that have been in use for thousands of years. From the tip of Cornwall to the Highlands of Scotland, the island is criss-crossed by ancient paths. The 18 routes selected by Dee Hannigan include prehistoric ridgeways, Roman roads such as Ackling Dyke in Dorset, and routes with religious origins such as the Saint's Way across Cornwall and the Monk's Trod across the North York Moors. In each case the book describes how the route came into being, who used it and why, the glory of the lanscape it traverses, and the historical relics that can still be seen. It supplies detailed instructions for following the routes on Ordnance Survey maps, and shorter, circular walks that can be accomplished in a day or half-day's walking.
