About this book

From the processional routes of ancient Britain to Victorian promenades along the sea-front, Britain's pathways are inextricably woven into our landscape and history. In this magical book, David Stewart and Nicholas Rudd-Jones set out to explore 20 of the most evocative and beautiful tracks and ways that criss-cross the nation, explaining how they came about and what they tell us about the people who made them. As they do so, they give both the keen and the casual walker a very real sense of what it is like to walk in our ancestors' footsteps. Each chapter covers one route, giving an overall location map and historical background information, accompanied by exquisite colour photos.
