Walks around the Ancient Churches of Llyn

I treated myself to this new book by Christopher Nichols, where he shares with us his favourite walks on the pilgrim routes to llyn. He takes us to the churches of saints such as Cybi and Tudwal and points out Llans, holy wells, and the churches where the pilgrims would stay on their journeys to and from Ynys Enlli. The book is illustrated by black and white photographs and there is a description of each of 13 walks, and there is a thumbnail sketch of a map for each one.

At £6.50 you can't expect coffee table book type photographs, or detailed maps. You would need to buy a 1:25,000 explorer map, which would work well alongside the book, and you could take your own photographs for record. As readers of this blog will know, I have covered many of these themes in my own jottings, but I have to say, it's a beautifully written and concise book. Add it to your Christmas list.
