This guidebook - which includes both a guide to the route and a separate OS map booklet - describes Offa's Dyke Path National Trail from south to north, following the longest linear earthwork in Britain, running 177 miles along the English-Welsh border between Sedbury (near Chepstow) and Prestatyn on the north Wales Coast. The book splits one of Britain's classic trails into 12 stages suitable for walkers of all abilities. Step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by 1:100,000 OS map extracts. Also included with this guidebook is a booklet of 1:25,000 OS maps, which provides all the mapping needed to complete the trail in a compact form. A trek planner gives at a glance information about facilities, public transport and accommodation available along the route. The walk is astonishingly varied, taking in the lower Wye gorge, the Severn and the Dee rift valley, the pastures and woodlands of the border country, the remote moorland of the Black Mountains and the Clwydian range, and the dramatic limestone escarpments of Eglwyseg mountain. What makes it even more special is over 60 miles walking alongside the Saxon earthwork of Offa's Dyke.

A land of magnificent mountains, verdant valleys, beautiful beaches and towering castles. All this, the travel brochures tell you, is crammed into the tiny country of Wales – and it’s true. A marvellous place to visit then, and what better way to see it than on a bicycle? Starting just across the border in Chester, this book charts the course of a cycle ride which roughly follows the coastline of Wales. The sights seen are vividly described with many references to their historical significance. Wales has a rich cultural heritage and the book is enlivened by the many interesting and humorous conversations with local people. Read about the naked lady lying at the bottom of the stairs and the bandit from Bolivia. A Welsh International rugby player and a company director are two of the people who gave exclusive interviews. This is essential reading for cyclists and couch-potato pedallers as well. Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.

This guidebook to UK's ultimate challenge walk, the End to End, describes a 1956km (1215 mile) walking route from Land's End in Cornwall to John o' Groats in Scotland's far north - the two points on mainland Britain that are the furthest apart. The recommended route avoids road walking as much as possible and frequently takes advantage of existing long-distance trails, including the South West Coast Path, Pennine Way and West Highland Way. Passing through remote terrain at times and keeping to the hills where practical, it is intended for experienced hill-walkers. The guide includes route description and maps, concentrating on the 'gaps' between the major long-distance trails covered in other Cicerone guides. There is also a wealth of advice to help you prepare for and undertake your walk, covering equipment, safety, supplies and facilities. Notes on history, geography and local sights, along with anecdotes from those who have successfully completed the journey, add interest and inspiration. The route is presented in 61 daily stages (each averaging around 32km), divided into 6 sections; an alternative three-month schedule is also provided. The End to End Trail promises a magnificent adventure through some of the best the British countryside can offer, and a unique sense of achievement on completion of your walk.

To the north lies Snowdonia, a land of awe-inspiring mountains, wild moorlands and enchanting lakes. Further south the land is abundant with deep valleys and vast forests. Wales also has a rich cultural heritage full of myths and legends founded on Celtic ancestry but has an equally strong industrial past.

Bob Bibby is on his travels again, this time following the line of that mighty earthwork that stretches 177 miles "from sea to sea" along the old border between England and Wales—Offa's Dyke, built by the very first self-styled King of the Angles, the fearsome 8th century King Offa. Join Bob on an extended pub crawl as he walks the long-distance path between Chepstow and Prestatyn, stopping off at local hostelries to sample the wares in the interests of research. Walk with him along the glorious Hatterall Ridge, on the 80 miles of still-extant Dyke itself, across the Froncysyllte Aqueduct and finally over the Clwydian hills to his final destination. Meet some of the fascinating historical and modern-day characters he stumbles upon—"Ozzie" Osbern of Chepstow Castle, the original Hound of the Baskervilles in Kington, King Richard of Hay-on-Wye, Kilvert the Pervert of Clyro, the "Herbies" of Montgomery, William Spooner (or Spilliam Wooner) of Oswestry, the Daleks of Llangollen, Coch Bach of Ruthin and many, many more. Discover the truth about Placido Domingo's vocal exercises, Carol Vorderman's 28 day Detox Diet, two lovely African pygmy frogs named Eleanor and Sarah, the site of Arthur's last battle, the Order of Wandering Peace Poets, why Near Earth Objects are rather worrying, what the Welshwomen did to the dead bodies after the Battle of Pilleth, what Horatio Nelson was up to in Monmouth, and the origins of the V-sign. Special Offa is a wonderful companion for those planning to walk the Offa's Dyke Path, whether on foot or in the comfort of their armchairs.
