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