A Reflection

When I started to read this Book, I was immediately very impressed by the very clear Route instructions and also the detailed descriptions of the Towns, Villages and other Places of interest. A Summary of the Walks is attached.

Having now completed all 20 Walks, I strongly recommend them. I have been fascinated by the new bits of country I walked through and the detail that I have discovered about the places and landmarks en route. I intend continuing to walk these routes, and others, 1 or 2 times a week probably on Monday or Thursday and would be very happy for others to join me.

If you would like to send me your email address, I can circulate details, a day or 2 before, of what walks I may be planning.

I expect some non-regular footpath walkers or people unfamiliar with Shipston Country may have some reservation about “heading off” into the unknown. The book is very helpful in giving approximate time and distance for each walk. It is worth noting that, and in addition to those few mentioned in the Book, there are opportunities for shortcuts should walkers run out of either time, or energy - or both!

In order to help others to enjoy them as much as I have, I would be pleased to answer queries or discuss details of any particular walk. Equally I am happy to act as “guide” to individuals or parties on a route of your choice. Donations to SHN would be appreciated but are entirely optional.

Copies of the book are available from me as well as from SHN and most of the Pubs which are on the routes. All proceeds will go to Shipston Home Nursing.
