  • Description
  • Related

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 Britainís countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

In journeys through the Westcountry we are often confronted by tantalising glimpses of the industrial past in the form of evocative engine houses, chimney stacks, canals and harbours. This book aims to help the inquisitive walker delve deeper into this rich legacy by providing ten diverse walks throughout Cornwall and West Devon. It not only offers step-by-step routes, sketch maps and inspirational photographs, but also provides information about the places visited along the way.

A Boot Up Mining Walks in Cornwall & West Devon offers fresh ideas and gives a different perspective to a familiar ramble. Whether crossing open moor or walking along a coastal path, trekking through wooded valleys or following a long abandoned canal, it is a convenient pocket-sized companion designed to add an extra dimension to the enjoyment of a leisurely walk.

Pete Hancock is a seasoned author having published Cornwall at War with Halsgrove in 2002. He has since written two books about his home town, St Austell:The GoldenYears (2004), and The Book of St Austell (2005). What might be considered a companion volume to this present book, The Mining Heritage of Cornwall and West Devon, appeared in 2008. When not writing he works as a teacher, and has produced three school text books. He enjoys walking, photography and delving in to the regionís past. Other interests include classic cars, and he is a regular contributor to car magazines.
