Ronald Turnbull’s Cicerone guide to Three Peaks, Ten Tors is a practical book exploring long-distance and challenge walks in the UK, providing tips and advice on tools, techniques, routes and reminiscences from the author’s own walks. For aspiring or novice long-distance walkers, the guide is valuable in providing tips on how to minimise the ‘suffering’ of walking, staying safe, raising money for charity and reflections on the highs and lows of long-distance routes. Turnbull intersperses sound advice with wry recollections of his experience of the National Three Peaks challenge and other such routes across the British Isles.
The guide is organised into sections detailing 15 long-distance and challenge walking routes across the UK including National Three Peaks, Yorkshire Three Peaks, Lancashire Three Peaks, Three Peaks of Somerset, Ten ors (Dartmoor), Lyke Wake Walk, Derwent Watershed, Across Wales, Lairig Ghru, Fifty walks from your front door, Welsh 3000s, Lakes 3000s, Cumbria’s Old Country Tops, Cairngorm 4000s, Mourne’s Seven Sevens and Tranters’ Walk in Lochaber. Each Chapter begins with Information boxes detailing the hills involved, distance, ascent, terrain, a suggested target time and how long the standard strong walker should take to walk the route. Detailed route descriptions are accompanied by colour diagrams mapping the route in addition to colour photographs illustrating some of the highlights of each region.
