Twenty circular walks in and around Timsbury by Bradshaw, Cunningham and Fraser, £4.00.

The book contains directions, maps, colour photographs and information about points of interest for each of twenty routes, all of which start and finish in the centre of Timsbury. Timsbury is fortunate to be surrounded by such attractive countryside and the area is blessed with one of the densest networks of footpaths in the country. Also the area has such a fascinating history, including the coal mines and the coal canal. Great pleasure can be had from walking in it and it is hoped the book will enable more people to share in that enjoyment.
