These walks have been chosen to reflect the diverse nature of the district, so you will be taken to the most beautiful places as well as the most interesting ones. Plenty of information is given about the route of each walk, and the author shares his kwledge of the natural history that can be seen, as well as giving information about the history and geology along the way.
