I confess, I’m a fan of circular routes. I enjoy walking but a finish that involves public transport or a conveniently parked second car is not for me. I also like great views, the UK countryside and a decent pub to rest, recuperate and meet both locals and fellow explorers. Add to that mix, an opportunity to visit civil-war battle fields, pick a route to suit available time and to enjoy great maps, detailed descriptions, good photos and variety that includes the Downs and lowland countryside, and you have Deirdre Sutton’s excellent little book. And I don’t describe 'Day Walks' as a ‘little book’ by accident. It is a perfect size to slip in your pocket or rucksack. Easy to carry, easy to refer to, easy to use. A great read. Time to reach for your walking boots and give it a try.
