£ 8.99   The National 3 Peaks - 'Taking up the challenge' - Discovery Guide
  Undertaking the National Three Peaks walk has become a hugely popular challenge. Many 'challengers' are motivated by a wish to raise money for a charitable cause. But as well as that, more and more people are seeking personal milestones in their lives; seeking to test themselves, their stamina, their grit and determination. For many the National Three Peaks provides one such milestone. But it can be even more. It can be great fun, an adventure, a memorable, enjoyable experience of team and individual achievement. For a few it can even be a life changing event.
Sadly for others it can be a failure, a disappointment. One of the most common reasons for this outcome is preparation Ė or rather the lack of it Ė combined with mistaken or unrealistic expectations about the event and perhaps even themselves. The Three Peaks Challenge is never going to be a walk in the park. But with proper preparation and know-how it is eminently attainable for most people.
That's the reason for this book. When Steve's team started to plan for the challenge they found information was readily available on routes, timings, advice on training and hillcraft. But nowhere could they find such advice combined with a full account of a successful challenge attempt. What they really wanted and needed was to get a true feel for what they would be facing. They wanted to gauge their capabilities against others who had already succeeded, to identify with the highs and lows and anticipate or forestall their own.
This then is their story, plus suggestions on training, walking routes (including GPS track logs from the actual paths walked), driving routes, navigation, equipment, meals, and accommodation. Their Challenge Plan ran to 11 pages of text and checklists. It is included for you to copy.

£ 9.95 The Pilgrims Way - Basingwerk Abbey to Bardsey Island - Kittiwake Guide
The Pilgrimís Way is a long-distance trail of some 134 miles from the Dee Estuary to Bardsey Island, tracing an ancient route across the stunning landscape of North Wales. The walk passes through the mountainous area of the country, and at one point reaches the foot of Snowdon itself. However the walk never involves severe mountaineering, although there is some rugged terrain and a few steep sections. On the whole, though, the Pilgrimís Way is more a test of perseverance, and many stretches pass along river banks, through woodland, across fields and along the coastal path.
Each section can be walked in a day but getting back to your starting point can be awkward in an area where public transport is rather limited. The Pilgrimís Way is well marked throughout, some sections better than others, with regular waymark plaques. Sometimes these are not always easy to spot, and often the waymark confirms your choice of direction rather than helps you make a decision.
The start of the Pilgrimís Way is Basingwerk Abbey, situated in the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park, Flintshire. The walk is divided into sections which can be managed in a day. Some of these can be sub-divided over two days, eg. Trevor to Towyn, with a break at Nefyn. 14 miles is the longest stretch.
