An excellent guide for walking in this beautiful region, 11 Jan 2006 This is a very well researched book with 30 walks of considerable variety from a short stroll to a full day ramble, so there should be something here for everyone. The walks are clearly described with accompanying maps and photos to make navigation is easy - and for those who like to use a GPS when walking, each walk comes complete with a full set of Waypoints. The author has provided lots of points of interest and historical notes for each walk which, along with his gentle style, makes the book a good read too. There is also plenty of additional information on accomodation and public transport, pretty much everything you might need to enjoy some great walks in Dorset. And, a nice touch, the book is spiral bound so very easy to open out and pop into a waterproof pocket should it decide to rain. The best walking guide for this region I have seen. Paul Norris - UK A well written attractive guide to Dorset walking, 14 Jan 2006 I have bought books by the excellent walking researcher before, and I was not disappointed. There's a good variety of walks to suit easy half days and challenging hikes. I like the way the descriptions are accurate yet relaxed in style. I am just into GPS and found the waypoints invaluable. The maps are good(OS) and the routes clearly overlaid. Plenty of detail like timings, ascents, descents, compass directions, good pubs! I have only just got the book and have tested one route, but it was brilliant - I can't wait to get out there again. Highly recommended. Very informative, 15 Jun 2009 I found the book very informative about the area, the walks were well described and nicely laid out with clear details as to "easy "moderate" or "challenging" with good insight about amenities and facilities available.
