Many people have discovered the South West Coast Path by walking a section of it, some indeed with intent, but quite a few others have simply stumbled across it whilst on holiday. One can walk the whole 630 miles from Minehead to Poole Harbour but the 10 walks in this book are mostly circular, using the Coastal Path as part of the walk. In this way the walker can sample some of the best sections of the long-distance path in North Cornwall and along to the Hartland area of North Devon while not having to retrace their steps.

The 10 walks are as follows:

CLOVELLY–GALLANTRY BOWER • HARTLAND POINT • HARTLAND QUAY–SPEKE’S MOUTH •TREBARWITH STRAND–TINTAGEL • PORT ISAAC–PORT QUIN • NEW POLZEATH–PENTIRE POINT •TREVONE–STEPPER POINT • MAWGAN PORTH–BEDRUTHAN STEPS • GODREVY–NAVAX POINT • ST IVES–LELANT

The Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks book 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. They are perfect walks for families.

Philip Carter is a Devonian by birth. After a working life mainly as a potter he sought further education. Having gained a degree with the Open University he obtained an MA in Local and Regional History at the University of Exeter. He has contributed articles to the Devon Historian and written a book about Newton Abbot on the history of that town. He has been involved with the South West Coast Path Association since its inception. Philip says: ‘I used to be Secretary to the Coast Path Association, and it was said that I had to know every mile of the path. My wife, a far more practical person, knew every tea shop!’
