The South West Coast Path National Trail (SWCP) measures a staggering 630 miles (1015km) from Minehead on the Somerset coast right round Devon and Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. The guidebook divides the route into 45 stages of between 12.5- 37.5km beginning and ending where amenities are available. No other stretch of coastline compares for scenic splendour, historical sites and availability of refreshments, accommodation and public transport, making it easy to split the South West Coast Path into week or weekend-long sections. Written by prolific outdoor writer Paddy Dillon, this guidebook is packed with lots of information for planning your walk, including clear step-by-step route descriptions and OS map extracts, public transport links, accommodation and facilities along the way. Also described is the 17-mile South Dorset Ridgeway, from West Bexington to Osmington Mills, which can be used as a scenic way to shave 42 miles off the total distance. This epic route takes in Exmoor National Park, five Areas of Outstanding National Beauty and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, besides various nature reserves and SSSIs.

Other South West Coast Path walkers usually seem to start, rather sensibly, at the beginning, progress to the middle and finish at the end. Often the challenge seems to be tackled in one 'hit', which is fine if you can spare the eight weeks needed to do it that way. But our story is not like that. Snatching time off from work when we could, the sections of path we attempted depended upon the availability of out of season public transport. Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk, it's Alternative cousin and our own Hare-Brained Hike were duly conquered, but the "Path" still resisted.Whatever the terrain, whatever the weather, the presence of 'killer steps' or otherwise and regardless of whether or not we stopped at lunchtime, we always seemed to average two miles per hour over each trip.And as we went, we recorded both our adventures and our 'fuel' economy...

The south West coast path is one of the world's most popular long-distance walking routes, taking in 630 miles of breathtaking scenery, from Minehead to poole via land's End and the lizard. The reader will find no better recommendation for reading this book than that provided by the sWcp National Trail officer, Mark owen: Anyone who loves walking the South West Coast Path National Trail and wants to find out more about the landscapes it passes through and the heritage found along our coastline will enjoy this book. The author has done a great job of bringing to life the stories behind the diverse landscapes to be found as you walk around our wonderful peninsula. For millennia, people have lived, worked, worshipped and occasionally had to fight along the coastline followed by the South West Coast Path and Ruth Luckhurst covered thousands of miles, spoke to numerous experts and local people, as well as unearthing material from archives and museums. I¿m delighted that through this book, she is able to bring all this together to give a fascinating overview of what you¿ll find as you explore the UK¿s longest National Trail. This book, along with its superb illustrations, will add immeasurably to the pleasure of exploring the lesser known aspects of the coast path, whether in planning a route to take or in looking back at a section already covered and appreciating in more detail the unique qualities of the coastal landscapes, places and people.
