About the Book
The essential guide to both east and west Mendip featuring eight walks of varying degree, now available for the first time as a pocket book, illustrated with black and white images of some of the hidden delights of Mendip.
OS mapping is included at the back of the book to assist the walks that reveal the true extent of the countryside and villages that nestle among the contours of the Mendip Hills.
Our journey begins on the western fringes where the hills rise to 1068ft above sea level at Black Down, culminating among the winding lanes and wooded valleys of eastern Mendip.

Or perhaps that should read Ben Sherman, which incidentally if you do get around to reading 'The History of Skinhead Reggae' you will notice I still possess. My latest foray is a story about a young lad who's unable to identify or sympathise with his peer group of hippies and bikers then he discovered the skinhead culture and reggae in the spring of 1969. Our Boss is certainly no choir boy. He's not excessively aggressive but has acquired a penchant to demonstrate an overload of high jinks. Is it Biographical? Well if asked I will elucidate the characters and events are all fictional.
