The Southern Upland Way: Scotland's Coast to Coast trail
The Southern Upland Way is Scotland's coast-to-coast walk and the longest of the nation's Great Trails. 215 miles long, it links the pretty harbour village of Portpatrick on the west coast with Cockburnspath, a little south of Dunbar, in the east. The walk is at times a strenuous one, crossing the remote high moorland of the Galloway Hills, Carsphairn range, Lowthers, Ettrick Hills and Lammermuirs, calling for competence, fitness and self-reliance. This guide presents advice on how best to plan and tackle this challenging but highly rewarding journey. The waymarked trail is presented in fourteen stages of 9-19 miles and suggestions for a rest day exploring Moffat and its environs are also included. It is possible either to backpack, taking advantage of five bothies and unlimited wild camping possibilities, or to stay in towns and hill villages, B&Bs and inns (facilitated by vehicle pick-up to avoid excessively long walking days). The guide covers all the practicalities, with tips on planning, transport, accommodation, luggage transfer and vehicle support services. Clear step-by-step route description is provided for each stage, accompanied by 1:50,000 OS mapping and notes on local history and points of interest. A trek planner and useful contacts can be found in the appendices. The Southern Upland Way showcases the wild beauty of southern Scotland, taking in rugged moorland, rolling hills, wooded river valleys, lochsides and coast, as well as some of the attractive border towns that scatter the region. There are also numerous historical sites, offering an insight into a fascinating past - from ancient cairns to bastles, Covenanters' memorials and literary connections - plus opportunities to visit local attractions, including Castle Kennedy Gardens, Wanlockhead Lead Mining Museum, Traquair House, Melrose Abbey and Thirlestane Castle.

How to Look at Stained Glass: A Guide to the Church Windows of England
The magical qualities of stained glass have an enduring appeal, but church windows tend to be ignored as a form of creative and artistic expression. How to Look at Stained Glass is a fresh, unstuffy guide, which explores the medium by themes, patterns, designs, and effects. Using an A-Z format to reveal a multitude of fascinating details - all the way from apples to zig-zags - it makes looking at gloriously colourful, artistically important windows entertaining and rewarding. This layman's guide requires no previous historical, artistic or religious knowledge and the A-Z miscellany is in keeping with the pot-luck mix of windows to be found in most churches. It covers all the major periods and styles from medieval to modern, Victorian to post-war, eighteenth century to Arts and Crafts, figurative to abstract, and examines the fascinating and evolving iconography of stained glass. Illustrated in black & white and colour and with a list of the top 30 places to see outstanding examples, How to Look at Stained Glass is all that is needed to make sense of and enjoy the array of stained glass windows in the churches of England.

Fife Coastal Path
The Fife Coastal Path runs around the coastline of eastern Scotland for 117 miles (187 km) from Kincardine on the Forth to Newburgh on the Tay. Starting west of the magnificent Forth bridges, the route heads through former mining towns towards the villages of Fife's East Neuk (corner), with their rich tradition of smuggling and fishing.

Fife has long played an important part in Scottish history and the route passes many castles, towers and churches. There are splendid views along the coast and over the Firths of Forth and Tay, with great chances to sight seabirds, seals and dolphins. The villages have welcoming pubs, famous fish-and-chip shops and good B&Bs. Transport by train and bus makes for easy access throughout.The guidebook contains everything you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on foot, or on a bike where cycling is appropriate - details of each section showing distance, side-trips and food/drink stops; background on history, landscapes and wildlife; planning information for travel by bus, train, car and plane; lavishly illustrated, with 100 colour photographs; and detailed mapping of the entire route at 1:45,000.

Cheshire
This brand new title in Bradt's acclaimed UK regional series is the only full guide to Cheshire, a county known for its abundance of black and white timbered buildings and which was put firmly on the map in the 1980s thanks to then-resident stars Posh and Becks. Cheshire confounds expectations, from the Cheshire Plain to the hills and moors of the Pennines and Peak District in the east and sandstone ridges in the west, not to mention the Wirral Peninsula, flanked by the major estuaries of the Rivers Mersey and Dee flowing into the Irish Sea. This is largely a rural landscape, an area of farm shops, forests and falconries; meres, marinas and marshes. There is industrial and scientific heritage, too, from Bronze-Age mining sites to the internationally important astronomical observatory and mighty Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank. With this new Bradt guide, discover all of this and more: the county town of Chester - declared the fifth prettiest in Europe in 2015 by USA Today - with its fascinating Roman history; ruins of ancient castles; and reminders of the salt and silk industries of the past. Cheshire also offers a network of canals, perfect for waterside strolls or pootling along in a narrowboat, while Bradt's Slow Cheshire also details information for walkers and cyclists. Military historians may know Cheshire as the location of the largest US Army Air Force airfield outside the US during World War Two (visiting celebrities who came to entertain the troops included Bob Hope and Glenn Miller), while Peover Hall was requisitioned as the HQ for General George Patton, who based himself there while preparing for the D-Day landings. Also included in this guide are grand stately homes, engaging museums, attractions and events. Local food and drink is covered, along with all types of accommodation, from farm stays and self-catering cottages to guesthouses and hotels. With direct flights for the US to Manchester nearby, it is now easier to visit this unique county than ever before, and with Bradt's Slow Cheshire you will have all the information needed for a successful trip.

Walking Hampshire's Test Way: The long-distance trail and 15 day walks
Guidebook to walking Hampshire's Test Way, a 44 mile (71km) route from Inkpen Beacon to the Eling Tide Mill near Southampton Water. The walk, which is described over eight stages, takes in many of the region's natural, historical and architectural delights, from the ever famous 'Sprat and Winkle' railway to the River Test itself - a stunning example of the exceedingly rare chalk stream. Each stage (they range in length from 3 to 8.5 miles) is described clearly and concisely, and is accompanied by 1:50,000 OS mapping. Worth its weight in your backpack, the guide also includes information on the history, geology and landscape of the Test Valley, as well as practical information on accommodation and transport. Additionally, it describes 15 circular walks in the Test Valley, which vary in length from 3.75 miles (6km) to 8.5 miles (13.75km). The Test Way passes through areas of intriguing history and remarkable natural beauty. There are sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as well as Iron Age hill forts, medieval churches, age old abbeys, relics from a long passed railway era and quaint villages brimming with thatch and flint and individual 'hostelries' to match. It is a walk well suited to history and geology enthusiasts, and certainly a must for anyone interested in the iconic Sprat and Winkle railway.

South Devon and Dartmoor: Local, characterful guides to Britain's special places
This new second edition of South Devon and Dartmoor is part of Bradt's distinctive `Slow travel' series of guides to UK regions, offering in-depth exploration of one of England's most popular areas, a part of the country that has deep, historic ties with the USA. Written by resident experts Hilary Bradt and Janice Booth, it is the essential companion guide to discovering not just the obvious and most popular sites, but also for getting off the beaten track. South Devon has many links with the USA. The port city of Plymouth is where the Pilgrim Fathers set sail from on the Mayflower in 1620 (a wide range of events is in the pipeline to mark the 400th anniversary in 2020). The region was also the birthplace of several US-connected sons, including Sir Francis Drake and Sir Walter Raleigh, while in more recent times it was the site of the ill-fated and little-known `Exercise Tiger' during World War 2, in which up to 1,000 American lives are thought to have been lost. And for family history enthusiasts, the guide's detailed descriptions of village churches are used by visiting genealogists searching for ancestors from Devon. Colourful and witty writing, along with the authors' enthusiasm for their subject, makes reading the guide a pleasure. Much of the information has appeared in no other guidebook as the authors uncover the lesser-known charms of the region and different aspects of the more popular places, together with colourful characters from the past, folk history, and literary links from Agatha Christie to Conan Doyle. Discover the region's new whisky distillery; learn what really goes on at a wassail gathering; find out what you should do if you're harassed by pixies on Dartmoor; and discover unique local events like the annual Orange Race held in Totnes. The guide has a special emphasis on car-free travel: walking, cycling and river boats, as well as local buses and trains. Local food is covered, while accommodation and places to eat and drink have been hand-selected with additional advice from a Devon-based tour operator, from idyllically located campsites to stylish boutique B&Bs.

Its scope is as magnificent as our countryside itself.'BBC Countryfile Magazine 'This book is perfect for anyone who's travelled through the countryside, scratched their head, and thought, `what on earth is that thing?' Tony Robinson For the times when you're driving past a lumpy, bumpy field and you wonder what made the lumps and bumps; for when you're walking between two lines of grand trees, wondering when and why they were planted; for when you see a brown heritage sign pointing to a `tumulus' but you don't know what to look for... Entertaining and factually rigorous, Hidden Histories will help you decipher the story of Britain's landscape through the features you can see around you. This spotter's guide arms the amateur explorer with the crucial information needed to `read' the landscape and spot the human activities that have shaped our green and pleasant land. Photographs and diagrams point out specific details and typical examples to help the curious spotter `get their eye in' and understand what they're looking at, or looking for. Specially commissioned illustrations bring to life the processes that shaped the landscape (from medieval ploughing to Roman road building). Stand-alone capsules explore interesting aspects of history (like the Highland Clearances or the coming of Christianity), and text boxes provide definitions of jargon or handy references as required (like a glossary of what different field names mean). Each chapter culminates in a checklist of key details to look for, other things it might be, and gives details of where to find some of the best examples in Britain.

This new edition offers a very personal view of the county, providing up-to-date information on the best places to visit, stay and eat, covering not just popular sights but focusing also on those places beyond the usual tourist trail. Suffolk's popularity as a destination is not waning, and events such as the Latitude festival in July or the Aldeburgh Music Festival at Britten's Snape Maltings, not to mention the use of the RSPB's Minsmere Reserve as a base for BBC's Springwatch, are all helping to keep the county's profile raised. Southwold, Aldeburgh, Orford, Walberswick and Dunwich are all covered, as is the great variety of landscapes, from undulating farmland and sandy heaths to extensive forests such as Rendlesham and Thetford in the Brecks, important nature reserves and the soft, dreamy coastal landscapes of river estuaries, remote marshes, reed-beds, beaches, shingle banks, sand spits and dunes. Also included are Constable Country and the Stour valley, Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham, Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth, plus information on Suffolk's wealth of medieval churches and its Anglo-Saxon heritage, notably the royal ceremonial burial site at Sutton Hoo and the reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow. Bradt's Suffolk makes a virtue of being selective and pointing the reader to the cream of the area. It is organised into locales to encourage `stay put' tourism, with the opportunity to explore each locale thoroughly. There are also plenty of options for car-free travel: walking, cycling, river boats and local buses and trains. Written in an entertaining style, and offering a personal narrative, authoritative information and interesting anecdotes, Bradt's Suffolk is the ideal companion with which to discover this charming corner of England.

North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds including York and the Coast: Local, characterful guides to Britain's special places
This new, thoroughly updated second edition of Bradt's North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds, part of the distinctive `Slow travel' series of guides to UK regions, remains the only full-blown standalone guide available to this region of contrasts, from the magnificent cliffs and beaches of the Heritage Coast and rolling hills of the North York Moors to the tranquil chalk downland of the Wolds. Nestled at the heart of it all is the ancient historic city of York, with its stunning Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. As well as featuring all the main sights, Bradt's North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds includes places and aspects of the region not detailed by other guidebooks and, while making a virtue of being selective, nonetheless covers the whole region in considerable detail. It also includes personal anecdotes and the views of local people as well as tapping into the Yorkshire-based author's considerable knowledge of the region, especially his experiences as an outdoor enthusiast, naturalist and beer connoisseur. With Bradt's North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds, discover what makes this area tick. The annual Tour de Yorkshire has helped to establish the region as a biking Mecca, while the Yorkshire Nature Triangle in the east is renowned for its birds and wildlife, from adders to barn owls, otters to dolphins. Wildlife lovers will also find details of whale-watching tours. Included in the guide is information on the 10 long-distance paths which cross the area, plus tips on the sandy beaches and rocky coves that make this an ideal family destination. Local food and drink, from seafood to meats, cheeses and breweries, is covered, too. Also included are details of festivals, steam train journeys as featured in the Harry Potter films, the Georgian opulence of Castle Howard as featured in Brideshead Revisited, sea-bird colonies along the Heritage Coast, the only mainland colony of gannets in England at Bempton Cliffs, and the tallest standing stone in Britain. Written in an entertaining style combining personal narrative with authoritative information, Bradt's North York Moors and Yorkshire Wolds has all the most up-to-date information you could need for a successful visit.
