Warwickshire Walks to Wet Your Whistle, Roger Seedhouse - A collection of walks, all with good pubs, in Warwickshire - the centre of England and a county of great contrasts. Historic, bustling towns interspersed with pretty, quiet villages. A land of lakes and country parks which are a delight to behold, merging into the Northern Cotswolds with its buildings of honey-hued stone. This book will appeal to both more experienced walkers and, by the introduction of shorter alternatives, to casual walkers or those wishing to vary the length of their walk as mood or time constraints dictate. The main walks range in distance from 6.25 to 10.5 miles and have a pub conveniently located about half-way round. Shorter alternatives range from 3.25 to 6.5 miles and start and finish at the pub. The pubs vary in style and character but have generally been chosen to provide a watering hole in which the walker will feel welcome and comfortable, rather than for plush surroundings.

Warwickshire Walks to Wet Your Whistle

Walks Through History in the Heart of England, Roger Seedhouse -  The Heart of England is rich in history, both ancient and more modern, and the twenty-four walks in this book offer the enquiring walker many intriguing glimpses of a bygone age with iron-age forts, medieval castles and even a second world war camp. Most are based on English Heritage sites, although a few others have been included because of their particular interest. Distances vary from 3 miles up to 13.5 miles (although this longer one can be divided up to create two separate walks). All of them start at, or pass through, places of historical interest which will add greatly to your appreciation of a day out in beautiful walking country. Most have good pubs en route.

The Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail, Bob Bibby - The Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail is a pleasurable seven-section ramble through the middle of England in Shakespeare's Warwickshire. Beginning in the Bard's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon the route journeys along the Avon and Arrow Rivers to the Roman town of Alcester, then north to Studley and cross-country via Ullenhall to the mile-long street of history that is Henley-in-Arden. Going partly along the towpath of the Stratford Canal and partly across verdant country, the route leads next to Kenilworth, where Robert Dudley's Castle awaits with its much-vaunted Elizabethan Garden. From Kenilworth the route heads south via Mercian Offchurch to the many-pubbed village of Harbury before climbing over the Burton Dassett hills and circling the perimeter of the Battle of Edgehill to come into Kineton. A further southern jaunt takes walkers down the Vale of Tysoe to the lovely Cotswold town of Shipston-on-Stour, then it's back via Ilmington and Long Marston to Stratford-upon-Avon. The route of The Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail is given in detail, accompanied by diagrams and illustrated information about places passed through. The main features of each town are also described and illustrated, together with listings for Real Cakes, Real Ales and accommodation. Published May 11.

Walks Through History - Birmingham, John Wilks - "Walks Through History: Birmingham" contains twelve walks within the city. Each walk is circular, with clear concise directions supported by easy-to-use sketch maps, illustrated by a host of photographs. Each walk covers a specific period in the history of Birmingham, and goes past historic buildings and other sites from that period. The history of the sites seen is given in a highly readable and informative style that brings the past alive, and is so written that the book can be read as a history book alone, independent of the walking. Together the twelve walks cover all the major themes in Birmingham's history, and if read chronologically they lead the reader from Birmingham's humble beginnings in Saxon times to its position as workshop of the world. Birmingham has a compact city centre, and six of the walks are around the centre. The other six are in the suburbs, each starting from a railway station within easy reach of the city centre.  Published March 08. K
