Footpath Rambles In Leicestershire: A Complete Ramblers Guide (1943)

Book details

front cover

by Alfred L. Cook (reprint)

Price: £8.00

Compiled in 1943, this book sought to offer relief from the turmoil and upheaval of life in the Second World War with a series of 20 walks around the Leicestershire countryside. Each walk is illustrated with a sketch map, and detailed directions are given along with a description of the areas the walk passes through.

Even though produced during a time of conflict, this book gives a charming insight into a rural world which was soon to change beyond recognition. How many of these walks are possible today?
