Rambling and Beginners

March 15, 2013

Following the good reception that my Rambling book has received, I am soon to publish another on land access rights. It will be published by Fellside Books in April. More to come but keep tuned in. Thank you for all of your help and support. It is much appreciated.



My ebook for Kindle on rambling for beginners is available on Amazon, so please take a look while it is at the introductory price. Although aimed at the novice, I hope there might be some bits in it that will appeal to more experienced walkers. And you don’t need a Kindle to read the book – you can download a free Kindle App for your computer from the Amazon site.

Walking in the countryside is Britain’s most popular recreation and rambling is the best way to get to know the quieter places of the British Isles. Unlike a lot of outdoor activities, rambling or hiking can be enjoyed by all kinds of people, young and old, those who are fighting fit and not quite so fit. You can go as far and do as much or as little as you choose. Rambling is all about taking time out from our very rushed modern world. An opportunity to walk away from the stress and travails of modern life.

VLUU L110, M110  / Samsung L110, M110 For the price of a magazine, Rambling – The Beginner’s Bible gives you a very readable and basic introduction to the whole subject. It suggests places to walk, what to wear and what gear to take, the law concerning public footpaths and bridleways, how to plan a hill walk and a walking tour.

It tells you how to combine rambling with other outdoor interests, seeing places that the car driver can only imagine. It concludes with some inspiring accounts of actual rambles in the British Isles – most of them suitable for the new rambler.

Although it is aimed at the newcomer to rambling there is much in this book for the more experienced rambler to enjoy. The book is a good introduction to visitors to Britain, who might want to walk.

Make this the year that you find your feet – it’s a beautiful countryside out there!

Rambling – The Beginner’s Bible draws on John’s experience of country walking to give sound advice to the would-be rambler.
