Walking on the Gower, Andrew Davies - This guidebook presents 30 circular day walks in the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in the rich variety of landscapes across this beautiful area of South Wales. Ranging from 21/2 to 14 miles long, there are walks to suit all abilities. The peninsula is famous for its spectacularly steep, rugged coastline and perfect golden sand beaches but this guide also takes walkers to the inland valleys, hills and ridges little explored by most holidaymakers. Route descriptions are illustrated with OS mapping extracts and inspiring photography and accompanied by a route summary table to help you choose walks to suit your location and ability. Along the way, the author provides a wealth of information on the plants, animals, geology, history and archaeology of a region with something for everyone, all within a compact area easily accessible from Swansea and Mumbles. Coastal areas such as those around Langland, Oxwich and Port Eynon are well frequented, but this guidebook concentrates on places where walkers can escape the crowds to find peace and solitude in this exceptionally beautiful and unspoilt area. Published October 15.

Circular Walks in the Gower, Nick Jenkins - Gower is a peninsular in south Wales that offers some of the best coastal walking Wales and possibly even the UK has to offer. The coastal scenery is both superb and varied and the book aims to cover most of it in easy to walk stretches. The author has also attempted not to neglect the areas away from the coast; rural, peaceful and with a charm all of its own. Here are walks for all capabilities, all seasons and there are some cracking pubs en route too. Published January 13.

Wales Coast Path: Tenby to Swansea, Chris Moss - 2012 saw the opening of the entire Welsh coastline as an official long-distance footpath. Now, to complement its existing National Trail Guide to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which makes up the section of the Path from Fishguard to just beyond Tenby, Aurum publishes a completely new guide to the other most scenic and popular stretch of the Wales coast – the section eastwards from Tenby to Swansea. Starting in the superbly picturesque tourism centre of Tenby itself, Chris Moss’s guide follows the coast through Laugharne, famous as the birthplace of Dylan Thomas, Pendine Sands, whose vast level beach was the historic venue for the early attempts on the world land-speed record by buccaneering drivers like Parry-Thomas and Sir Henry Segrave, before winding right round the beautiful Gower Peninsula – an extremely popular holiday destination – before taking in the Mumbles to end in the bustling city of Swansea. With full route descriptions, OS 1:25,000 maps throughout, and dozens of stunning colour photographs, as well as a wealth of background history along the way, this new guide is the complete companion for both the seasoned walker and the weekend stroller.  Published June 13.

Walking on Gower, Andrew Davies - This handy guidebook offer 30 circular day routes right across the popular holiday destination that is the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, taking in the wide variety of landscapes and ranging from 4km to 22km long. The peninsula is understandably famous for its spectacularly steep, rugged coastline and perfect golden sand beaches but this guide also takes walkers to the inland valleys, hills and ridges little explored by most holidaymakers. Some coastal areas are well frequented, such as those around Langland, Oxwich and Port Eynon but this guidebook concentrates on the areas where walkers can really escape the crowds to find peace and solitude. Along the way, the author provides a wealth of information on plants, animals, geology, history and archaeology of a region with something for everyone all within a compact area easily accessible from Swansea and Mumbles. Routes are illustrated with OS mapping extracts and inspiring photography and accompanied by a route summary table to help you choose your walks to suit your location and ability and useful websites for planning your trip.

Walking in the South Wales Valleys, Mike Dunn - A handy guidebook to 30 day walks and 2 weekend backpacking routes (the Coed Morgannwg Way and Glamorgan Ridgeway). This compact and easily-accessible area is full of varied walking opportunities in valleys, along ridges and along the beautiful Welsh coast. A turbulent geological history has created a corrugated landscape of ridges and valleys and an equally turbulent history of human settlement has left many historical monuments to explore. Walkers today can therefore follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers, Celtic saints, Methodists lay preachers and ironminers, often using the ancient trackways, Roman roads and packhorse trails that they trod. It's a landscape of great open views but it's an intimate landscape too, shared with brown hares, foxes and birds of prey, and full of surprises, from hidden chapels to forgotten industrial heritage. This guidebook is illustrated with colour photographs and OS map extracts and packed with geological, historical and practical information.  Published July 12.
