About this book

Created when Britain lay south of the equator, Devon's ancient limestones are as exciting and interesting as any rocks in the British Isles. And so are the caves which have been formed in the rocks by the action of water over hundreds of thousands of years. Over the last two centuries of research, these caves have yielded up a vast store of information about our past climates and about the people, animals and plants that once inhabited this part of Britain. The walks in Exploring the Limestones of South Devon are packed full of interest and information. They are described in great detail and you can use the book to explore parts of Devon that you might ordinarily miss, combining the walks in ways to suit yourself. Better still, the walks provide a healthy antidote to holiday over-indulgence and good exercise for both mind and body. Written and produced by knowledgeable authors, this is a small book to treasure.

The contents cover 13 walks in the Plymouth, Yealmpton, Buckfastleinh, Torquay, Brixham and Chudleigh areas and there is a general introduction to the geology, notes on access and some items for further reading. There are route and geological maps for all the walks, full route details and many illustrations showing key points of interest on the walks.
