A Boot Up The Blackdown Hills
A Boot Up The Blackdown Hills
  • Description
  • Related

The Blackdown Hills remain a well-kept secret.Though straddling the central boundaries of Devon and Somerset the area is unknown to many in each county. Despite being crossed in the south by the A30, the A303 and the A35, much of the area is truly remote. It more than justifies designation as an area of outstanding natural beauty though official confirmation was a long time coming.

This is a lush landscape that can boast all shades of green, from virtual yellows in spring through to the deep greens of its ancient woods. Although this can sometimes make pastures, valleys and woods blend almost imperceptibly into each other, expect some superb walking country across the Blackdown Hills.

The ten circular walks, ranging from 4 to 9 miles, suit the needs of families, groups of friends or individuals looking for a gentle stroll or a longer walk, and reflect the many varied facets of the area – its people, its history, and its working landscape and will help first time visitors to experience some of the great scenery the area has to offer. Many of the walks feature a pub along the route.

Halsgrove’s new-format guidebook, containing maps, photographs and useful information will ensure a great walking experience. Packed with colour, the book is an ideal reminder of a visit to the area.

Rodney Legg is a prolific author and historian who has published hundreds of country walks. Nationally he is active in the environmental movement having been chairman of the Open Spaces Society since 1989 and a member of the ruling council of the NationalTrust from 1990.
