A Journey Through South-East England: Lewes to Woolwich follows on from Brian’s previous journey through South-East England from Broadstairs to Lewes (ISBN 9781912362431). This journey of around 100 miles, being part two of a mammoth trek through Kent and East Sussex, was also achieved just before his 70th birthday.
In this book, Brian shares his experiences of walking in three chapters: Lewes to Hartfield, Hartfield to Upnor and Upnor to Woolwich. Each chapter forms a travelogue and contains detailed route maps and cartoons commemorating some of the more amusing episodes.
Brian delights in sharing anecdotes with his readers gleaned from various observations and encounters on the way. This book is a celebration of the geography, geology and landscape, the history, people and places of this wonderful part of England.
More than just a walking guide, this book, like Brian’s previous publications, is essential reading for lovers of the great outdoors and those interested in conserving and developing our ever-changing landscapes.
Brian J. Rance lives in Birmingham.
