All of the routes start at a parking area so that you are immediately walking in the hills - but without walking up them. Norman has made a particular point of exploring less well-known but undoubtedly attractive fringe areas so the scenery is surprisingly varied. While these walks are not long strenuous slogs, Norman is keen that walkers should take time to fully appreciate their surroundings. In keeping with this relaxing philosophy, picnic spots, refreshment stops and places of interest are highlighted along the way.
Each walk includes detailed instructions, clear maps and photographs to inspire. Concise introductory notes allow instant assessment of a walk's suitability - gradients, distance and conditions at a glance.
Distance: 1.5 to 8 .25 miles
