Condensed from 30 years’ exploring the countryside on our doorstep, Beyond Bristol 2 follows Robin Tetlow’s enormously successful Beyond Bristol (published by Redcliffe Press in 2017).
Beyond Bristol 2 comprises another 24 walks through the author’s most-loved landscapes of the West. Deep-cut valleys, woodlands, uplands with panoramic views and ancient settlements are traversed by carefully-chosen footpaths and peaceful tracks. The ups and downs of the Mendip Hills, the deceptively tough topography of the Cotswolds and the glowering skies of the Somerset Levels and Severn Estuary are made yours to explore; and the Wye Valley is a short hop away. 

Here are prehistoric forts, nature reserves, grand houses, busy farms, time-worn churches, monuments, villages and welcoming pubs, and the majestic curves of the Severn bridges.
Each walk is from 6 to 11 miles long and all are within 30 miles of the city – and many much closer. Some are easier than others, some demanding; and there is something for all weathers, all moods and a modest measure of fitness.
Each walk is described in great detail, tried and tested for accuracy and seasonal variations. Each is illustrated by an extract from the Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 map, with route and waymarks superimposed. All the walks traverse the highest quality landscapes and incorporate as many features of historical, archaeological and natural interest as possible. As far as possible they avoid busy roads and other noisy distractions.

There are colour photographs throughout, and advice on kit, refreshments and the countryside code.

 So whatever the weather, pull on your boots, pop this book in your pocket and get walking. You’ll feel better, look better and grow fitter and stronger.
