Walking is one of Britain's favorite pastimes, and the new 15 Great Walks series offers something different - with a view to helping more and more people to get walking. Instead of all short walks or all long walks, these guides are designed with a range of lengths - starting with walk one at 2 miles and finishing at walk fifteen at 15 miles. In addition, the reader is encouraged to do the walks in the order in the book, not just because the walks get longer, but also because the walks have common threads running between routes telling different stories of that particular area. The 15 Great Walks series feature all the information needed to help new walkers get out into the countryside; detailed yet easy-to-read hand-drawn maps showing the routes, clear information with all the important facts, photographs showing key points and route directions which tell the story of the walk - and all written in plain language by walking expert Andrew White, the presenter and producer of the TV series Walks Around Britain. This guidebook takes in fifteen great walks not just in the Snowdonia National Park, but also in North Wales as a whole - including the island of Anglesey, and takes in walks through the countryside, along old railway lines, beside water, up hills and down valleys - but always with stunning views and interesting stories. Welcome to 15 Great Walks in North Wales.

Accompanying the six-part BBC 2 series, the six walks featured in this book follow the old tracks, overgrown cuttings and ancient viaducts which are the legacy of 'The Beeching Axe'. Julia Bradbury looks at how the rise and fall of the railways has altered the lives of communities across the country. Today, many of the thousands of old branch lines which were closed in the 1960s are now the treasured stomping grounds of ramblers and hikers. This book follows six of these beautiful walks, all offering an insight into Britain's industrial heritage: the Monsal Trail in Derbyshire, Dolgellau to Barmouth in Snowdonia, Cornwall's Coast to Coast Trail, the Strathspey Railway, Weymouth to Portland, and Callander to Loch Tay in Perthshire. Fully illustrated with maps and photographs of Julia walking the routes and the spectacular surrounding landscapes, Julia Bradbury's Railway Walks will inspire you to don your walking boots and explore Britain's lost rail empire. The book covers six different walks: 1. Derbyshire- The Monsal Trail 2. Snowdonia - Dolgellau to Barmouth 3. Cornwall - Coast to Coast Trail 4. Speyside - The Strathspey Railway 5. Weymouth - Harbouring History 6. Perthshire - Callander to Loch Tay To see photos from the launch on the Ffestiniog, click here

From grilling Welsh Black Beef Burgers on the barbeque, or cooking up Cromer crabs in a pot over a campfire after a day at the beach, what we cook when we camp is a memorable part of the adventure. If that food is grown in surrounding fields, caught in nearby rivers, or produced by local people, the experience is even richer--it connects us with the places we are visiting. Food can tell us the story of a place. This book is full of those stories. Pitch Up, Eat Local is the Camping and Caravanning Club's inspiring guide to amazing places to camp, each close to great locally grown or produced foods. It is full of details and first-hand descriptions of farmers' markets, doorstep sales, farm shops and pick-your-own, and even the campsites themselves that produce food. There are inspiring recipes to go with each campsite, from a one-pot Herdwick Lamb Curry to Yorkshire Rhubard Crumble, all easy to cook on a gas hob, barbecue, or over a fire--and all using ingredients produced in the local area. If you love food and fresh air, this book is for you.

So You Think You Know About Britain

When it comes to immigration, the population explosion, the collapse of the family, the north-south divide, devolution, or the death of the countryside, common wisdom tells us that we are in trouble; however, this is far from the truth. In his brilliant anatomy of contemporary Britain, leading geographer Daniel Dorling dissects the nation and reveals unexpected truths about the way we live today, contrary to what you might read in the news: The human mosaic: Most children who live above the fourth floor of tower blocks in England are Black or Asian. The higher you go in a building, the darker skinned children tend to be. Relationships: The more times a person's heart is broken, the nearer they will tend to move to the sea. If you want to find a good man to marry head for the countryside. North and South: People in the south move home on average every seven years and job every eight years. This is a year faster than in the north of England, but a year slower than is usual in Scotland. Optimum population: Emmigrant nation - There are twice as many grandchildren of British-born people living over-seas as there are people living in Britain who have grandparents who were themselves born abroad. The problem now is more about getting pregnant than a population explosion and we need more immigration not less. Immigration: Muslims are far more likely to marry non-Muslims in Britain than Christians are to marry non-Christians. The elderly: Most people in Britain never live long enough to experience being burgled. In some areas you would have to live for over five hundred years to have an 'evens' chance of being a crime victim. Town and Country - divided since the enclosures: Step children are most commonly found in the most leafy of idyllic rural villages. Nuclear family homogeneity is now an inner city phenomena. Why are there no cheap homes in the countryside any more? Transport: The greatest threat to life in Britain of all those aged under 40 is the car. For adults aged over 24 they most likely die as a driver, over 15 as a passenger, and over age 4 as a pedestrian. Work: There is no need for us to work until we drop - all could retire early. Reviews for Injustice: "A geographer maps the injustices of Selfish Capitalism with scholarly detachment." --Oliver James. "Dorling provides the brain-cleaning software we need to begin creating a happier society. " --Richard Wilkinson author of The Spirit Level.
