From the processional routes of ancient Britain to Victorian promenades along the sea-front, Britain's pathways are inextricably woven into our landscape and history. In this magical book, David Stewart and Nicholas Rudd-Jones set out to explore some of the most evocative and beautiful tracks and ways that criss-cross the nation, explaining how they came about and what they tell us about the people who made them. As they do so, they give both the keen and casual walker a very real sense of what it is like to walk in our ancestors' footsteps.
Setting off from his Cambridge home to follow the ancient tracks, holloways, drove-roads and sea paths that form part of a vast network of routes criss-crossing the British landscape and its waters, the author's tracks take him from the chalk downs of England to the sacred landscapes of Spain and the Himalayas.
