Martyn Howe - Tales from the Big Trails
7:00PM to 8:00PM Friday 22nd October 2021
Martyn Howe has been enacting our bucket lists for the last forty years, taking on the iconic long-distance trails of England, Scotland and Wales.
In Tales from the Big Trails, Martyn vividly describes the diverse landscapes, wildlife, culture and heritage he encounters around the British Isles, and the physical and mental health benefits he derives from walking. He also celebrates the people who enrich his travels, including fellow long-distance hikers, tourists discovering Britain’s charm, farmers working the land, and the friendly and eccentric owners of hostels, campsites and B&Bs. And when he is asked ‘Why do you do it?’, the answer is as simple as placing one foot in front of the other: ‘It makes me happy.’
Join us at P&G Wells from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Friday 22nd October 2021 to hear Martyn Howe talk about the book and get a signed copy.
