The South West Coast Path National Trail (SWCP) measures a staggering 630 miles (1015km) from Minehead on the Somerset coast right round Devon and Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. The guidebook divides the route into 45 stages of between 12.5 to 37.5km, beginning and ending where amenities are available. Written by prolific outdoor writer Paddy Dillon, this guidebook is packed with lots of information for planning your walk, including clear step-by-step route descriptions and OS map extracts, public transport links, accommodation and facilities along the way. Also described is the 17-mile South Dorset Ridgeway, from West Bexington to Osmington Mills, which can be used as a scenic way to shave 42 miles off the total distance. This epic route takes in Exmoor National Park, five AONBs and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, besides various nature reserves and SSSIs. No other stretch of coastline compares for scenic splendour, historical sites and availability of refreshments, accommodation and public transport, making it easy to split the South West Coast Path into week or weekend-long sections.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) was founded in the mid-nineteenth century and was granted a Royal Charter of Incorporation by Queen Victoria in 1890. It was created for the encouragement of the Rifle Corps of the newly formed Volunteer Movement and the promotion of rifle shooting throughout Great Britan. .This would be accomplished by establishing a great Annual National Meeting, where marksmen could compete for valuable prizes and ensuring that the location was easily accessible to all comers over the developing railway network. Situated in Bisley, some 35 miles from London, the base of NRA had very little infrastructure and soon enough, the Council invested, buying land and providing permanent accommodation. The London and South Western Railway Company built a spur from Brookwood Station to accommodate the camp whilst the tramway was relaid to connect the camp and ranges. The original range layout still remains today in its basic form. Nowadays, the NRA is predominantly concerned with civilian full-bore target rifle shooting, yet it still maintains its military heritage and continues its links with the British Armed Forces.The book relates the extraordinary relationship which developed between the NRA and, primarily, the London and South Western Railway Company and its successors in fulfilling these aims, together with the fascinating story of the associations own unique tramways.

The South West Coast Path is the longest of Britain’s National Trails, following the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset. This updated volume features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast. From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’s golden beaches, it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’s End and the Lizard – as far south as it is possible to go in mainland Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno, with its dramatic open-air theatre. The Path is rich in wildlife, offering a rare chance to see the delightful red-beaked chough, as well as seals, dolphins and peregrines. From the holiday stroller to the experienced long-distance walker, this guide contains everything you need to explore one of the most spectacular and varied long-distance trails in the world. National Trail Guides are the official guidebooks to the fifteen National Trails in England and Wales and are published in association with Walk Unlimited, the official body charged with developing and maintaining the Trails.
