A Boot Up Isle of Wight Pubs
A Boot Up Isle of Wight Pubs
  • Description
  • Related

The Isle of Wight has around one pub for every square mile so satisfying your thirst is never going to be a problem. The pubs are located in all sorts of places with many of them having lovely views or nearby historic landmarks or sites of interest.

Many of the pubs are in picturesque villages and the vast majority serve excellent locally-sourced fresh food.

Add to this the fact that the Island has over 500 miles of footpaths means the only problem is knowing which paths take you to which pubs.

This book is designed to help by describing in detail, 10 circular walks that combine a number of pubs in areas with local interest that are off the beaten track. This will enable readers to enjoy full days out in lovely surroundings, seeing some of the Island’s historic sites, sampling some locally brewed beers and all with the excuse of keeping fit. What more could anybody want?

The walks vary from 3 to 10.75 miles and are designed to suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk.

The ten walks are centred on Freshwater; Norton; Calbourne; Chale; Godshill; Arreton; Wootton; Newchurch; St Helen’s and Bembridge.

Phil Christian had a long career in the telecommunications industry. On leaving this in 2010 he decided he wanted to share his 15 years’ worth of countryside walking – he estimates that he has walked about 4000 miles along Sussex, Kent, Surrey, Hampshire and Isle of Wight footpaths. During those walks he has come across many sites of interest, lovely country pubs and magnificent views which, being a keen amateur photographer, has resulted in thousands of photographs over the years.
