Map of five Oxfordshire walks

These Landscape Companions consist of five 12-page guides which each give comprehensive written and map instructions for following each walk. However, the main purpose of these 'landscape companions' is to provide an engaging illustrated commentary on the human and natural landscape through which these walks progress. The walks are set within the countryside known as the 'Golden Ridge', some 12 miles to the west of Oxford.

A stout A4 water-resistant plastic folder is provided and this also contains; a large two-sided colourful map (510mm X 420m) showing all five colour-coded recommended circular walks in the Kingston Bagpuize, Longworth and Hinton area. The map is folded to pocket-size.

A4 size. 60 pages, 43 photos, 18 maps, 19 illustrations.
