  • Northumberland Coast Path

    Roland Tarr

    Product Code: AYVEU
    Paperback
    The Northumberland coastline stretches from the outskirts of Newcastle up to the Scottish border at Berwick-upon-Tweed - a popular holiday destination for its wild and sweeping landscape of endless beaches of pale sand, succession of spectacular castles like Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh, congenial resorts like Alnmouth, and unique offshore attractions like Holy Island and the Farne Islands. Now, Roland Tarr's new Trail Guide maps out the walker's route along the entire coast, starting from the centre of Newcastle and including an extension beyond Berwick to the seabird crags of St Abb's Head. Along the way the guide covers the remarkable industrial heritage of this coastline - the coalmining town of Ashington that gave birth to both the Ashington Group of Pitmen Painters and the Charlton brothers - and its fabulous wildlife, with seals and puffins off the shore. From a handsome Tyneside city to a distinguished border town straddling the Tweed, this is a superbly bracing walking country for the ever-increasing number of tourists who discover Northumberland every year.

    Roland Tarr

    Product Code: ATJJP
    Paperback
    The South West Coast Path is the spectacular 630-mile (1008-km) National Trail around the tip of Britain. This volume features the section of the Path from Exmouth to Poole, a distance of 116 miles (186 km) along the Jurassic Coast, a designated World Heritage Site. Following Natural England's acorn waymarks, the route wends its way along the cliffs, past The Cobb at Lyme Regis and the impressive sweep of the Chesil Beach to Lulworth Cove and Studland Bay. This complete, official guide for the long-distance walker or the weekend stroller has been fully revised and updated for 2013. It has also been completely re-designed, and features many more colour photographs and much more backgrpound information on local history and wildlife. It is less a guidebook than a complete companion for anyone visiting this part of the landscape. National Trail Guides are the official guidebooks to the fifteen National Trails in England and Wales and are published in association with Natural England, the official body charged with developing and maintaining the Trails.
