London: Country Walks!

It’s not often that we feel compelled to essentially offer advertising copy for another publication, but we’ve fallen in love with Time Out’s Country Walks Volume 1, a compendium of 53 walks (one for each week of the year plus one reserve) within a short distance of London.

The country walks listed in the book were honed over several years sections on lyme disease, the suggestion that walkers invest in “a compass with a swivelling rim marked in degrees,” maps, and its careful descriptions of walks and potential hazards (“exclamation marks in square brackets —[!]— mean ‘pay careful attention to the route here, it is easy to go wrong’”) are all super informative and helpful.

There’s also a second volume, which we haven’t yet checked out.
