'WALK' A NEW BOOK COVER FOR 2018 December 31 2017

There is nothing I enjoy more than packing my sketchbook and thermos flask, putting on my hiking boots and stepping out for a good walk with my cocker spaniel, Pebble.

At the start of the new year, I love to browse through my collections of maps and travel books and plan walks that I would like to do throughout the coming months.

If you love walking as much as I do, then I’d warmly recommend this lovely new book ‘Walk’. It is written by author David Bathurst who has walked all the complete National Trails of Great Britain, and more. Published by Summersdale Publishers it will be available from 8th March 2018.

That’s all for now, thank you for reading.

I’d like to wish you a very happy new year and I hope you enjoy lots of lovely walks in 2018!
