Clockwise walkers are provided with a traditional bound and printed guide book, which contains all the information needed to plan and walk the route, including all the maps and route descriptions.
This printed edition of the book is 126 pages, weighs approximately 120g and is 18cm high and 11cm wide, perfect for fitting into a jacket pocket, or the side pocket of a pair of trousers.
In addition: Each order includes a FREE digital edition of the guide book, provided in PDF format and sent via email*. The electronic edition enables you to print off the route descriptions or maps and carry them with you on the walk, perhaps in a waterproof map case.
PayPal is my preferred method of payment. Paypal guarantees both ends of the transaction. Use the buttons below to select the version of the guide book you want and it will be added to your basket on the right. If you live outside the UK you will also need to select the appropriate postage amount. When you have made your selection, click the checkout button beneath your basket.
Using PayPal is very easy, click here for help on using PayPal. If you prefer to pay by cheque, see below.
Upon receipt of your payment I will post the guide book – usually the same day. I will send you a confirmation email as soon as the book has been posted. Please allow 2 working days for all items to be dispatched.
If the address associated with your PayPal account is not the one you want the book sending to, please drop me an email with the correct addresses.

There is no printed guide available for anti-clockwise walkers, instead you can download a digital version of the guide book in PDF format. Unfortunately, the vast majority of walkers complete the route clockwise and it doesn’t make economic sense to publish a printed version for anti-clockwise walkers. However, the digital version comes with instructions on how to produce a functional printed guide on your home printer. Or you can read the guide directly off a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
Upon receipt of your payment I will send a secure download link for the digital edition, to enable you to access it immediately.
The digital version comes in three sections;
Section One is a detailed planning guide, helping you to make all the decisions about where to stay, where to eat, what to take with you, when to walk and so on. Once you’ve made all these decisions however, you may not need to carry this section of the guide with you as you walk.
Section Two is the walk description; a turn by turn guide to finding the path, choosing the right branch in the track, identifying some of the surrounding scenery and historic buildings. Every gate, every stile, every change of direction is detailed in this section of the guide.
Section Three is a series of hand-drawn maps at a scale detailed enough to use as you walk along the route. If you don’t like to read directions as you travel, then you can use the maps to guide your way.

Payments by Cheque
I’m happy to accept a cheque on a UK bank account.
Send me an email if you want to pay by cheque and I’ll reply with the details; i.e. my name and address. Which for obvious reasons I will not post on here. Send your email to: email@example.com
Please remember to write your email address on the back of the cheque before you post it.
Payments by Cash
Probably uniquely on the Internet I’m also happy to accept cash.
That is I’m happy if you are. Remember that a very small percentage of Royal Mail letters get lost every day. The chances of yours going astray are very small indeed. However, if you wish to send me a £10 note in an envelope, please take these precautions…
Firstly, fold the cash into a piece of paper, as if you were sending a letter. Make sure you write your postal and email addresses on the piece of paper.
Secondly, send the letter from a post office counter and ask for a proof of postage receipt. This will cost you nothing, it just proves you sent the letter and the time, date and post office you sent it from. If the letter gets lost in transit we will both know and you can claim on the Royal Mail website for the loss of contents.
Send me an email if you want to pay by cash and I’ll reply with the details; i.e. my name and address.
