East Sussex books: Walking and Tours
Finding My Place is more than just a guide book to Kent and parts of East Sussex; it is also a companion guide to the places visited on seven marathon walks. It is a celebration of the geography, geology and landscape, the flora and fauna, the history, people and places of this part of southern England.
A 'Kentish Man', the author writes passionately about the area, including his own experiences from childhood, rediscovering the land as he walks, with references to poetry, music, art and literature. This book relates the author's experiences of walking throughout Kent and parts of East Sussex, from the London suburbs to the North Kent and Channel coasts, accompanied by painful feet and many a pint in local pubs on the way.
Spread throughout the book are 85 illustrative plates to supplement the narrative: including route maps, in-depth historical information, points of interest and notable landmarks, countryside regulations and descriptive wildlife profiles, and a selection of the author's own 'place' poems. The text is also accompanied by a generous sprinkling of illustrations depicting some of the author's encounters.
This is a special, different kind of walking book, not only in terms of its scope and detail, but also because of the hundreds of miles walked by the author in 'finding his place'.

"Kent and East Sussex" is one of 10 titles in the updated "Cycle Tours" series. The series has now been in continuous print for more than 15 years and with regular route revisions and updating the successful formula has gathered a large following. Each book in the series contains 20 routes all of which are either totally new or have been re-ridden and updated. There are 15 lane rides of between 26 and 36 miles taking you along low-traffic or traffic free roads, tracks and paths. These visit the towns and villages of Kent's Garden of England, the Sussex Weald and Romney Marsh with suggested short cuts for shorter rides, and suggested links to other nearby rides for a full day out. The 5 off-road rides of between 11 and 17 miles explore the North and South Downs. A unique feature of the "Cycle Tours" series is the superb Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger mapping showing the routes of the rides. The mapping not only gives the detail and clarity you need to follow the route with ease and safety, but allows you to plan short-cuts and detours, to look out for new places of interest, and to become truly involved in the landscape you are cycling through. Clear directions are given alongside the mapping and elevation profiles make planning the pacing of each ride an easy task. Extra information includes an introduction to the area of the route, nearest railway stations, places of interest with descriptions, guides to refreshment stops, and clear indications of distance, grade and terrain. The books are practically designed with a spiral-binding to make route-following as simple as possible.
