And other challenging walks in the UK, by Ronald Turnbull
Three Peaks, Ten Tors - a Cicerone guide to UK Challenge Walks
Practical guidebook for anyone planning to do a long distance or challenge walk.
Includes information on 15 routes from the 3 peaks (National, Yorkshire & Lancashire) to the Ten Tors with both serious and humorous approaches.
Provides notes on what it takes to do a challenge walk, how to choose the challenge and much more.
A look both serious and humorous at what it takes to do a long-distance or challenge walk - the mental toughness, experience, the slight madness - plus notes on planning and undertaking the best such routes.
Ronald Turnbull, veteran of many a long-distance and challenge walk, intersperses sound advice with wry recollections of his experience of the 3 Peaks Challenge and other such routes throughout the British Isles.
Suitable for aspiring or novice long-distance walkers, the guidebook provides tips on how to minimise the suffering, to stay safe, to raise money for charity perhaps, and to find a surprising amount of enjoyment along the way.
Old hands will enjoy comparing their experiences with the authors reminiscences of the highs and lows of long-distance routes.
