Hidden Landscapes of the SW Coast Path
Hidden Landscapes of the SW Coast Path
  • Description
  • Related

The South West Coast Path is one of the world's most popular long-distance walking routes, taking in 630 miles of breathtaking scenery, from Minehead to Poole via Land's End and the Lizard.

The reader will find no better recommendation for reading this book than that provided by the SWCP National Trail Officer, Mark Owen:

"Anyone who loves walking the South West Coast Path National Trail and wants to find out more about the landscapes it passes through and the heritage found along our coastline will enjoy this book. The author has done a great job of bringing to life the stories behind the diverse landscapes to be found as you walk around our wonderful peninsula. For millennia, people have lived, worked, worshipped and occasionally had to fight along the coastline followed by the South West Coast Path and Ruth Luckhurst covered thousands of miles, spoke to numerous experts and local people, as well as unearthing material from archives and museums. I’m delighted that through this book, she is able to bring all this together to give a fascinating overview of what you’ll find as you explore the UK’s longest National Trail."

This book, along with its superb illustrations, will add immeasurably to the pleasure of exploring the lesser known aspects of the coast path, whether in planning a route to take or in looking back at a section already covered and appreciating in more detail the unique qualities of the coastal landscapes, places and people.

A writer, editor, designer and publisher, Ruth specialises in the stories of the British landscape, from geology to mythology and including everything in between. As the official walks writer for the South West Coast Path’s four-year ‘Unlocking Our Coastal Heritage’ project, Ruth Luckhurst devised over 500 short circular routes based on the Coast Path, her research giving her a unique insight into the most fascinating features of the landscape and the stories behind them which she includes in this book. Travel, long distance backpacking and exploring the wilder regions of the country underpin her career as a writer, photographer and blogger.
