From Dark Peak on the Pennine Way in Derbyshire to the misty Malverns in Worcestershire and Milk Hill on the Mid-Wilts Way, walking the county high points provides the perfect opportunity for ramblers to experience the English countryside. An indefatigable walker, David Bathurst has unlaced his boots to produce this unique companion to the country’s most rewarding hilltop trails. His appreciation of the beauty and history of the British countryside and his light-hearted style will appeal to experienced and novice walkers alike.

About the author

David Bathurst has walked all the complete National Trails of Great Britain as well as the Coast to Coast Walk, the entire south coast of England, the highest points of all the English counties and the peaks of England, Wales and Scotland.

'If you're a keen rambler you'll love these outdoor tales and tips… the British countryside isn't often done justice but this collection breaks the mould with trip inspiring descriptions and a wealth of information to get you there, get you started, and get you hiking. Better yet the routes are simple and the maps are clear.'
