All the walks have been rechecked for this sixth edition of our guidebook to walking in Guernsey, Alderney and Sark.
The maps have all been redrawn using OpenStreetMap mapping with reference to GPS tracking, and free downloadable GPS tracks are now available for all the walks in the guide.
An ideal introduction for the first-time visitor, this book also provides new ideas for those who come year after year. Apart from marvellous coastal scenery that’s been compared to that of Cornwall and Brittany, there is much to explore of the island’s past.
For example, you could follow some of Guernsey’s ‘green lanes’ and ‘water lanes’ — centuries-old paths once used by pack-horses and donkeys, or follow a route that takes in the relics of prehistoric burial grounds as well as remnants of the German Occupation during World War II.
Guernsey cliff walks, with steep climbs and lots of steps, are quite challenging, but elsewhere walking in Guernsey is very easy — the terrain is almost flat and ideal for the casual stroller.
I have just spent a wonderful 10 days in Guernsey. Thank you for making our holiday so much more interesting. Full marks for the format of the book — so easy to carry. (Mrs JD, Chandlers Ford)
This book, like all Sunflower books, is great. Small and lightweight to carry with you. the details are easy to follow and are so helpful: Transport needed to get to the starting point. Length of walk. What shoes to wear and difficulty of walk. The maps are small but easy to follow. Lots of walks to follow at all levels. You don’t have to be an expert to do the walks nor follow the directions. Great value. (Mr C K Howell, Amazon)
