A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Somerset

Simone Stanbrook-Byrne and James Clancy

A Dozen Dramatic Walks Vol. 2
No Text A Dozen Dramatic Walks in Somerset entices walkers to sample the amazing landscapes that Somerset has to offer: spectacular gorges, the wildness of high moorland with its contrasting coombes, glorious coastline, picturesque valleys and pretty villages. It is aimed at walkers who like to feel a sense of achievement at the end of a day well-spent in the great outdoors. As with all the guides in this series, the walks aren't necessarily tough or challenging as the drama is in the scenery, but of course, to get to the viewpoints there are usually some ups and downs!

More than just a walking guide, these twelve circular routes include details of local refreshment stops, places to stay and nearby places of interest. History notes, wildlife pointers and the authors' tips and suggestions are also included.

This beautifully-illustrated book will find favour with photographers seeking a wide variety of subject matter, from vast land- and seascapes which change with the seasons to detailed botanical studies. It will appeal as much to those who live in and love Somerset as to those visiting the region.
