Halsgrove’s popular 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 Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. Perfect walks for families.

This book of 10 walks covers the far north of Cornwall, a remote district of deep wooded valleys, secret paths and ancient churches. Its history is full of strange characters, family rivalries, hauntings, smuggling and forgotten mysteries. This area is rich in stories and legends and the walks in this book explore places where there are such stories to be told and where magic and mystery can still be found.

The locations covered are:

MORWENSTOW &TONACOMBE • COOMBE & STOWE • LAUNCELLS & STRATTON • POUNDSTOCK, MILLOOK & TREBARFOOTE • DIZZARD •WEEK ST MARY & PENHALLAM • WARBSTOW & DOWNINNEY • EGLOSKERRY• ST JULIOT & MINSTER • ROCKYVALLEY

None of these walks is more than five miles long and all are intended for those who enjoy a leisurely amble of discovery.The routes follow public rights of way or land open for access. In a few cases short stretches of roadway are included.

Terry Faull is a seasoned and enthusiastic walker, being involved with walking organisations and advisory bodies linked to a number of local and county authorities. As a landscape historian he has researched and investigated the origins of the Christians, in what is now Devon and Cornwall, for many years, and his book Secrets of the Hidden Source covers the history of many of the Holy Wells in Devon.
