Walking Through Spring
An English Journey
Spring arrives a little later the further north you go, progressing at roughly walking pace. Beginning on the first day of the season on the south coast and arriving in Scotland on the last, three months later, Hoyland's epic walk follows the progress of new growth as he connects ancient tracks, green ways and footpaths for 500 miles, observing the flora and fauna along the way and drawing inspiration from favourite writers' reactions to the landscape he passes through.
Walking the Border
A Journey between Scotland and England
In 2013 Ian Crofton walked the Scots-English border from Gretna Green to Berwick-upon-Tweed. His journey, recounted in this richly evocative book, took him along river valleys, over bleak moorland and through dense conifer plantations, sometimes camping, sometimes staying in inns or B&Bs. In the best tradition of travel writing, he describes the landscape and the – farmers, shepherds, bar staff, anglers – he meets along the way, explores the region's history, literature and legend, and reflects on the nature of borders.
The Yorkshire Dales
