The South West Coast Path is Britain's longest National Trail, stretching some 630 miles (1014km) between Minehead in Somerset and Poole in Dorset. It takes in a National Park, 5 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, National Heritage Coasts and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This booklet of Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 Explorer maps has been designed for convenient use on the trail, covering the part of the route between Plymouth and Poole. It shows the full and up-to-date line of the National Trail, along with the relevant extract from the OS Explorer map legend. It is conveniently sized for slipping into a jacket pocket or top of a rucksack and comes in a clear PVC sleeve. Two separate booklets cover the route from Minehead to St Ives and from St Ives to Plymouth.
The map booklet can be used to accompany the Cicerone guidebook to The South West Coast Path - which describes the full National Trail in 45 stages, with lots of other practical information and local points of interest.
