100 Walks from the Poppy and Pint

Priced at £8, every sale of the book supports Friends of the Hook, dedicated to preserving Lady Bay’s local nature reserve. 

100 Walks from the Poppy and Pint became popular with locals during the pandemic when it released walk after walk in four volumes over a period of two years. The total number of walks eventually totalled 150! The best 100 of these walks has now been assembled into this new paperback version, making it easier for people to see and use.

‘A ridiculous number of walks from a single place – which just proves that our local countryside can be opened up and enjoyed by all’.

This guidebook describes one hundred walks from the doorstep of the Poppy and Pint, in Lady Bay or nearabout. It is the most comprehensive volume of walks in the area. Possibly the highest number of walks described from a single place in the entire country – if not the world – if not the entire universe!

The book is written by Jenny McGavin and Trevor Riddiough, both qualified mountain leaders and prolific walkers who live in Lady Bay. Each walk comes with a handy reference guide and map.

The book costs £8, with all the proceeds of the sale going to The Friends of the Hook who look after Lady Bay’s local nature reserve. Now available from the Poppy and Pint.
