Walking The South West Coast Path - Paddy Dillon
The South West Coast Path National Trail (SWCP) measures a staggering 630 miles (1015km) from Minehead on the Somerset coast right round Devon and Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. This guidebook divides the route into 45 stages of between 12.5 to 37.5km, beginning and ending where amenities are available making completing the route as accessible as possible.
Written by prolific outdoor writer Paddy Dillon, the book includes clear step-by-step route descriptions and OS map extracts, public transport links, accommodation and facilities along the way. Also described is the 17-mile South Dorset Ridgeway, from West Bexington to Osmington Mills, which can be used as a scenic way to shave 42 miles off the total distance. No other stretch of coastline compares for scenic splendour, historical sites and availability of refreshments, accommodation and public transport, making it easy to split the South West Coast Path into week or weekend-long sections.
