Bristol lies close to some outstanding and varied countryside. The Cotswolds, the Mendips, the Somerset Levels, the Severn Estuary, the Wye Valley, the Forest of Dean and the Wiltshire Downs are all accessible within about an hour’s travel  from the city centre.

Beyond Bristol: 24 Country Walks (2017) and Beyond Bristol 2: 24 More Country Walks (2019) and Beyond Bristol Again: Another 24 Country Walks (2023) comprise the author’s 72 favourite walks in the area, condensed from over 35 years’ exploration.

  • Circular walks through scenic landscapes and attractive rural settlements, incorporating extensive natural, built and historic interest;
  • 6 to 12 miles long, of varying topography and difficulty;
  • Chosen to ensure consistency of quality and variety within each book and across the three books;
  • Easy-to-follow detailed written route descriptions;
  • Colour OS map extracts with the route clearly marked;
  • Illustrative photographs;
  • All within about 35 miles of Bristol city centre, many much nearer. 
The books have proved widely popular ….
