The Pixz Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books that attract families and others to exploring the countryside in a leisurely way. It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

Bodmin Moor can appear bleak and barren and travellers who cross it along the central A30 main road might think that there is very little of interest or beauty to be found here. But they would be mistaken. The ten walks in this book are places around and about the Moor chosen to show that the scenery is as beautiful as anywhere in the West Country and that the area is steeped in history.

The 10 walks included are centred on:

ROUGHTOR • CAMELFORD RIVERWALK • ADVENT • ST BREWARD • BOWITHICK • ALTARNUN • POLYPHANT ANDTREWEN •WARLEGGAN • CARDINHAM • NORTH HILL

Terry Faull is a seasoned and enthusiastic walker, being involved with walking organisations and advisory bodies linked to a number of local and county authorities. As a landscape historian he has researched and investigated the origins of the Christians, in what is now Devon and Cornwall, for many years, and his book Secrets of the Hidden Source covers the history of many of the Holy Wells in Devon. He is also author of A Boot Up North Cornwall’s Sites of Magic and Mystery in this series.

Imprint PiXZ Books. ISBN 978 0 85710 001 6, hardback, 110x155mm, 64 pages. Published June 2011.
