Guernsey : With Alderney, Sark and Herm Paperback
by Geoff Daniel
Part of the Landscapes series
Pocket-sized full-colour guide describing a car tour around Guernsey's coast (with accompanying fold-out touring map) and days out on the nearby islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm.
There are 11 walks on Guernsey and one each on the other three islands, all illustrated with full-size 1:25,000 HMSO/Ordnance Survey maps (the only source for these maps, which are now out of print). Apart from marvellous coastal scenery, there is much to explore of the island's past.
For example, you could follow some of Guernsey's 'green lanes' and 'water lanes' - centuries-old paths once used by pack-horses and donkeys, or follow a route that takes in the relics of prehistoric burial grounds as well as remnants of the German Occupation during World War II.
Guernsey's coastline provides challenging cliff paths with steep climbs and lots of steps.
Elsewhere the walking is very easy, since the terrain is almost level.
Local transport timetables. Free on-line update service with specific route change information.
Series (50 destinations) dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times.
