  • Related

This companion guide to the South West Coast Path is intended to provide added pleasure and knowledge for those have walked it in whole or in part, or those who are planning to walk it.

With the inclusion of over 200 illustrations – spectacular aerial photographs appearing alongside historic photos and stories – this companion guide paints a picture of the places the walker will find along the coastal route depicting them as they were in bygone days.

This background information will enhance the reader’s experience of their walk, long or short, helping them visualise the small villages, seaside towns and ports through which they pass, as they looked in earlier times.

Philip Carter was born in Devon and was involved with the South West Coast Path Association from its inception. Few knew the Coast Path better than Philip, and he authored a number of books including The South West Coast Path - An Illustrated History, and Exploring the South West Coast Path, upon which this Companion Guide is based.

Simon Butler is an author and publisher living and working in the Westcountry. His recent books include The War Horses, Goodbye Old Friend and The Farmer’s Wife. He worked closely with Philip on the publication of his walking guides and, up to the time of Philip’s death in 2011, planned to publish several other walks books with him.

Imprint: PiXZ, ISBN 978 0 85710 097 9, hardback, 210x148mm, 144 pages. Published April 2015. Reprinted July 2017.
