Local author Liz Hurley (no, not THAT Liz Hurley...) has reinvented the classic walking book with her series of Cornish walks. We currently stock two in the series.
Walking with Dogs Between Truro & Fowey is an absolute must for dog lovers. The book includes eleven walks ranging from 2 to 7 miles, all of which have been stringently route tested by two manic springer spaniels and their obedient humans. The majority of each walk can be done off lead if so required and each walk is written with dogs in mind so avoiding livestock, cliffs and traffic where possible and ending near dog bins and water sources. Each walk is accompanied by a map, an elevation and colour photos with clear and concise instructions plus interesting and engaging points of interest.
Walking in the Fowey Area has been described as one of the best Cornish walking guides ever. Walk through myths and legends, literary landscapes and lost industries. See if you can spot where a dragon was slain, or a King cut down, play on the river which inspired Wind in the Willows or return to Manderley and walk through the landscape of du Maurier's books. Eleven walks ranging from 2 to 11 miles, each accompanied by a map, elevation and photos. These books are fully interactive with additional links, photo albums and even a section of seasonal recipes based on foraging finds you might spot on your route.
