Walking is without doubt the healthiest way to get around. The majority of us do it in our everyday lives, whether it is to the shops, to work or just to the nearest bus stop. But walking can be so much more than that; it can make you fitter and more active, helps reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, and takes you out into the glorious British countryside for an invigorating dose of fresh air.
Walking – A Beginner’s Guide, covers a whole range of subjects: from kitting yourself out and route planning, to understanding access and conservation issues and navigating with a map and compass. Chapters also cover topics such as learning new hill skills; walking with children, infants or while pregnant; taking a dog into the countryside; and practical advice for staying safe.
The book also includes a selection of great British walks – step-by-step route guides. They range from easy, low-level lakeside strolls, to more challenging upland adventures. And if you fancy going further a field, the book contains a selection of overseas walking destinations.
Whatever your age or ability, this book will help you enjoy the great outdoors. Take one small step today and who knows where you may end up!
