The layout explains where to start and park, the type of terrain and what O. S fail to work? The countryside is spectacular with views down river estuaries, out to Dartmoor and tranquil secluded spots hidden even from the motor car. The added bonus is that there is a pub some place along the route to give you a cool drink and refreshments. A lot of the pubs are also dog friendly so in the winter they can sit down by the log fire, the only problem is getting them back out on the road. Some of the pubs are very old so it is worth looking back on there history even has far back as the Knights Templar.

The countryside is beautiful and the walks all have something different to offer along the way. The views can be quite spectacular and to have a Tea Room along the way is nice to relax and enjoy a Devonshire Cream Tea. There are open fields, river paths, meadows, woodlands and even small hamlets with there old thatched cottages reserved only for the chocolate boxes.

If they run into any obstacles then they go straight through them or change route and go around so always changing the scenic back drop of the countryside. The wildlife can be very exciting along the rivers with fish, kingfishers, herons and on some rivers even otters, all of which can just disappear into the background and almost go unnoticed. Then there is the canals which are usually much straighter designed stretches of water, because they where used for transporting cargo from the work place to the docks.

Now mostly used by narrow boats for pleasure they set out at a much slower pedestrian pace, this makes it a very tranquil walk along the tow-paths of the many canals. But again the wildlife just seem to fit in and adapt to there surroundings. The book contains 10 circular walks all of different distances to cater for the whole family. There are walks along the Southwest Coast Path and beautiful views, then there is warm and charming thatched cottages in hamlets where you might only see if you went walking.

The Devon area is full of excellent beaches and hidden coves, a lot of the coves were used many years ago for smuggling. This book helps to explorer some of the areas that may not be on the holiday routes, with quiet country lanes, green lanes and open fields. The routes are easy to follow and almost a step by step guide from stile to finish. The book gives you an idea of the type of walk, distance and if it is easy, moderate or strenuous.

This would also include part of the South Hams district at Totnes. Rather than taking the car, experience the historic Tarka rail line and use Tarka Line Walks to hop on and off at the station of your choice and discover the charm and beauty of the surrounding countryside.

    The explorations go through many different habitats: The maps are based on Ordnance Survey maps, fifty or more years old, showing clearly the industries once in place. But although these have often disappeared, the pattern of the lanes remains the same today.

    She looks at the history of these routes, and the stories that surround them; the smugglers ways in from the coast, the mine workers who had to walk a long way to their quarries, the lace makers who trudged through the lanes bringing lace to Honiton and the drovers moving their animals from one farm to the next. Featured on the walks are castles and ancient monuments, and lively historical heroes such as Thomas Wakley, founder of The Lancet, Cavaliers fleeing from Roundheads, a poet seeking an Ancient Mariner and some tanners still working in a small town based industry.

    These 50 lanes readily complement those already explored in "Exploring Green Lanes in the South Hams" and lead the walker forth once again into the 'labyrinth of brambly burrow lanes' with only a bus ticket to protect you!

    Battlefield Walks - Devon , Rupert Matthews - A peaceful county today, Devon has seen clashes between Dumnonian and Welsh kings in the seventh century, Viking raids in the tenth and eleventh centuries and baronial uprisings in the fifteenth century. It was the Civil War in the mid-seventeenth century that brought the greatest bloodshed to the county.

    Rupert Matthews, 'the History Man', presents eighteen guided walks around the battlefields of Devon. He provides an account of events as they unfolded on the ground along with full background and context. His expertise, descriptive powers and lively enthusiasm bring the drama of history vividly to life. Behind the coast on the Devon side of the border, the landscape rises and falls into a series of deep-cut valleys between high plateaus of wild or wooded pebbled-heaths. Between the hills run the rivers that provide the root elements for many place names, notably the Exe, Otter, Sid and Axe.

    The ten circular walks, ranging from 4 to 11 miles, suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area - its people, its history, and its working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route. Halsgrove's new-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the area.

    All along its route is an abundance of beautiful scenery and a rich variety of human and natural history. The ten walks in this Book invite you to explore the Tamar Valley along the tidal reaches in the south and also excursions in the higher parts of the Valley to see ancient churches and farms and places rich in wildflowers and birdsong. Distances vary but none is more than five miles long and each walk is designed for those who enjoy a leisurely amble and who like to stop to quietly enjoy the beauty and history of this special Valley.

    Though straddling the central boundaries of Devon and Somerset the area is unknown to many in each county. Despite being crossed in the south by the A30, the A and the A35, much of the area is truly remote.
