About this book

The spectacular coastal scenery of Pembroke's national park is only one of the county's many facets explored in this collection of 40 varied and interesting walks. The routes take you through the Preseli Hills (from which ancient man took the 'bluestones' for Stonehenge), the Daugleddau's hidden tidal reaches (once busy with coal barges), deep wooded gorges (whose fast-flowing streams powered long-forgotten mills), prehistoric hill forts, medieval castles, isolated churches and many intriguing places that await discovery. With 40 routes ranging between 2 and 12 miles (20 km), there is something for everyone, often incorporating places to visit or a welcoming pub or cafe en route.

Biography

Both natives of Lancashire and living not far from Preston, Dennis and Jan Kelsall are no strangers to the Ribble Way and the splendid countryside through which it runs. As professional outdoor writers and photographers, they have written and illustrated many guides covering some of the country's most popular walking areas. They also contribute to various magazines, as well as producing a weekly walking feature for the Lancashire Evening Post. Their enjoyment of the countryside extends far beyond a love of fresh air and open spaces and an appreciation of scenery. They also have a keen interest in the environment and its geology, flora and wildlife, as well as a passion for the local history that so often provides clues to interpreting the landscape.
