The South West Coast Path is Britain’s longest way-marked trail, measuring a staggering 1015km (630 miles). Written by the well-known outdoor writer, Paddy Dillon, this guidebook provides lots of information to help tackle this immense National Trail route with confidence.
It describes the coastal path from Minehead to Poole. The tradition of walking the coastal route anti-clockwise has arisen because in this direction there are more miles with the wind and weather behind you as you walk, than against you.
A full introduction provides the SWCP’s historical background, advice on accommodation along the route and details on travelling to and around the South West.?There is detailed information on how to use this guide to make the most of your walk, whether you choose to walk the whole route in one go or decide to achieve sections at intervals.
To assist forward planning of both day walks and continuous long-distance hikes, the guide divides the coast path into sections, beginning and ending where there are amenities for refreshment or accommodation (or access inland to them).
We are always grateful to readers for information about any discrepancies between a guidebook and the facts on the ground. If you would like to send some information to us then please use our Feedback form. They will be published here following review by the author(s).
