Coastlines

The Story of Our Shore

Author: Patrick Barkham

Publisher: Granta Books

ISBN: 1847088988

Category: Travel

Page: N.A

Told through a series of walks beside the sea, this is a story of the most beautiful 742 miles of coastline in England, Wales and Northern Ireland: their rocks, plants and animals, their views, walks and history, and the people who have made their lives within sight of the waves. As he travels along coastal paths, visits beaches and explores coves, Barkham reflects on the long campaign to protect our shoreline from tidal erosion and human damage and weaves together fascinating tales about every aspect of the coast - from ancient conquests and smuggler's routes, to exotic migratory birds and bucket-and-spade holidays - to tell a more profound story about our island nation and the way we are shaped by our shores.

The South West Coast Path is the longest of Britain’s National Trails, following the spectacular coastline for 630 miles around the southernmost tip of England from Somerset all the way to Dorset. This volume of the Official National Trail Guide, published in association with Natural England, features the second section of 169 miles (271 km), from Padstow in north Cornwall to Falmouth on the south coast. From the surfing mecca of Newquay and St Ives’s golden beaches it hugs the rugged clifftops round Land’s End and the Lizard – as far west and south as it is possible to go in Britain – visiting serpentine harbours and craggy coves such as Cadgwith and Porthcurno with its dramatic open-air theatre. Besides truly wild sea-life like seals and fulmars, the Path offers the only chance anywhere in the country to see the delightful red-beaked chough. For the holiday stroller or the long-distance walker, this official guide contains everything you need. This new edition has been fully updated and revised, and completely re-designed with many new photographs, for 2013. It features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps for the whole route.
