Biography

Brian Conduit was born in Birmingham and educated at the universities of Birmingham and Nottingham. After a career teaching and lecturing in history, he began writing walking guides and over the last 20 years he has had over 30 books published. These books cover most parts of Great Britain as he loves walking anywhere, getting as much pleasure from a walk beside a Black Country canal or across the flat expanses of the Cambridgeshire Fens as from climbing mountains in the Lake District and Snowdonia, tramping across the Pennine moors or walking along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. He also enjoys urban walking, particularly exploring Britain's wealth of historic towns and cities. Brian now lives in the beautiful Ribble valley in Lancashire and has written several books and many magazine articles on walks in that area. Researching and walking the routes for Walking in Warwickshire took him back to the countryside of his youth, which he originally visited on a bike or by Midland Red bus. It was interesting to view the landscapes of his native county from a different perspective. He likes combining walking with his other great interest history- and many of his walks reflect this, incorporating wherever possible prehistoric remains, Roman villas, castles, abbeys, cathedrals, stately homes and industrial monuments.
