Guidebook to 30 circular day walks in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The routes, which range from 4 to 13 miles long take in parts of four counties - Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire. The walks allow you to explore parts of the Ridgeway National Trail, the Kennet and Avon Canal and stunning historic sites, such as Avebury, the 3000-year-old Uffington White Horse, impressive Neolithic long barrows and Iron Age hill forts. The North Wessex Downs are accessible hills that rise above the towns and rural plains of southern England and roll gently west from Reading and Basingstoke to Swindon and down past Marlborough to Andover. Alongside detailed route descriptions and OS maps, are plenty of details on points of interest, as well as practical information on the area from public transport links, to ideal refreshment stops on each walk. The result is an ideal companion to exploring both the popular and untouched corners of the North Wessex Downs.

Review:

"I have a fondness for the format of Cicerone guide books. They are clearly written, a handy size to drop into a map pocket and, best of all for me, they use Ordnance Survey mapping. I also have a fondness for Steve Davison s books. He enriches the essential practicalities of the walking routes with numerous interesting digressions on the villages, the churches, the wildlife, the geology and the history through which you pass. I was already familiar with a number of the 30 walks in the book but was inspired to try a few new ones. In every case they proved enjoyable and the descriptions in the book proved accurate and informative. In any book review it is usual to find fault with something. Praise is usually followed by a but....... . Here I have no reservations. I recommend this book to those familiar and unfamiliar with the North Wessex Downs. The walks are between just over 4 miles to 12 miles in length, with varying degrees of severity. There is something for everyone. Beg, borrow or steal a copy, put your boots on and get out into this wonderful countryside. --Ian Ritchie, Friends of the Ridgeway, October 2015
