About this book

Following on from Brian's escapades in South-East England, this ramble of 150 miles circumnavigates the West Midlands conurbation. Being closer to his home in Birmingham and partly undertaken over two COVID-ravaged years, this walk is a testament to the author's resilience and determination to complete the project. In this book, in travelogue style, Brian shares his experiences of walking around the built-up area in a clockwise direction.

Brian delights in sharing anecdotes with his readers gleaned from various observations and encounters on the journey. A Midland Meander is an examination of the geography, geology and landscape, the history, the people and places of this heart of England, ranging from the River Severn to the River Tame.

More than just a walking guide, this book, like his previous publications, is essential reading for walkers and lovers of the great outdoors. For those who can only sit at home, it is an opportunity to share in the experience and the author's consuming interest in environmental issues shines through on every page.
