North Downs Way - Official National Trail Guide - New Book

Colin Saunders

The North Downs Way follows the chalk ridge across South-East England for over 120 miles, from the Hog's Back in Surrey all the way to the white cliffs of Dover. It is a magnificently varied, and surprisingly tranquil, journey - through beech and oak woodland, across springy downland, rising to sweeping vistas from viewpoints like Newlands Corner, St Martha's Hill and the Wye Downs, and following the Pilgrim's Way to the ancient cathedral city of Canterbury.
This new edition has been re-written and re-designed from the beginning to end, to include a wealth of new information, and turn a scenic walk into a truly educative and enlightening experience. There are fascinating sections on the flora and fauna of the North Downs Way, and on the human history of it's landscape - from the Battle of Britain to the Kent miners - as well as the ascents and descents, and the railway station links, for every section.
