COVID-19 and
Overseas Orders

Due to local lockdown restrictions, travelling to the Post Office to arrange delivery of orders to overseas countries is very difficult. As such, for the foreseeable future, we are sorry to announce that only digital products are for sale outside the UK. All UK orders will continue to be sent as they do not require a visit to the Post Office.

It's All About the Detail

Our guides are designed to make your journey as pleasurable as possible and that means leaving nothing to chance! Each guide book is rigorously researched and that detail permeates each page, whether it’s the facilities available in each village, or who built and occupied that ruined castle, right down to the type of stile that’s coming up!

Planning Guide

All our books come with a detailed planning section, including an itinerary planner, public transport and accommodation guide, advice for beginners and so much more!

Route Notes

Our route notes are incredibly detailed and provide step by step guidance along the route. Every gate, every stile and every change of direction is provided, making navigation simple.

Route Maps

Our guides all include a detailed set of strip maps, with the route highlighted. Maps are provided in a PDF format so they can be printed full size and carried in a weather-proof map case.
