Printed Guide Book – 3rd Edition

The guide book has 126 pages, weighs approx. 120g and is 18cm high and 11cm wide, perfect for fitting into a jacket pocket, or the side pocket of a pair of trousers. The book describes the walk in a clockwise direction, as this is the way most people walk it. If you prefer to walk anti-clockwise, then there is a Digital PDF Edition of the guide book, see below.

The book contains all the information needed to plan and walk the route, including a village guide, maps and route descriptions. Each printed guide includes a full set of maps in PDF format, so they can be reproduced in full size for easier reading on the path.

Look Inside

Anti-Clockwise Walkers

The vast majority of Herriot Way walkers complete the route in the traditional clockwise direction. Unfortunately, for the few that want to walk anti-clockwise, there is no printed version of the guide book. Instead a specially written Digital Edition of the guide is provided in PDF format. This describes the walk in similar detail to the clockwise version, but from the anti-clockwise perspective. All the maps are also modified to guide anti-clockwise walkers along the route.
