The original Boogie, reluctant hero of the South West Peninsular Path, was the Mongrel from hell. Mark Wallington's New Boogie, like New Labour, appears a much trendier and more wholesome incarnation -until, that is, Mark gets him on the Pennine Way. This is the big one in every sense. Clearly Boogie will do fine -but will Mark be up to the task?

The Pennine Way is Britain's oldest, toughest long-distance footpath - and arguably its most iconic. Now a National Trail, the 427km (2651⁄2 mile) route from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders offers wayfarers the opportunity to immerse themselves in wild beauty of the North. The Pennines boast rolling hills, sweeping moorland and wide glacial valleys, and the Pennine Way has come to embody personal challenge and adventure. This guidebook presents the route in 20 daily stages of 10.5-31.5km (61⁄2-191⁄2 miles). Step-by-step route description is accompanied by 1:100,000 mapping and information about points of interest along the way, as well as advice on facilities and planning your trip, tips for walking the route and an alternative 15-day itinerary. Useful contacts and full accommodation listings can be found in the appendices. In addition, the guide includes a pocket-sized map booklet containing all the OS 1:25,000 mapping needed to complete the trail, saving the need to carry numerous map sheets. The Pennine Way crosses three National Parks - the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park - and other highlights include Cross Fell, the highest point in England outside of the Lake District; the Cheviot Hills; Kinder Scout; the limestone cliffs of Malham Cove; the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall. Overnight options range from camping to a mixture of hostels and B&Bs and there is great camaraderie amongst wayfarers. With a wealth of information to help you get the most from your trip, Paddy Dillon's guide is an ideal companion to discovering this classic trail.

This book presents a portrait of the Pennine Way, Britain's oldest and best known long-distance footpath, tracing its remarkable history through the experiences of walkers past and present. As Andrew McCloy walks the 268-mile route from the Derbyshire Peak District to the Scottish borders, he discovers how the Pennine Way set a benchmark for personal challenge and adventure and how reconnecting with wild places and the unhurried rhythm of the long walk continue to provide a much-needed antidote to our busy modern age. The resilience of the long distance walker is mirrored in the path's fascinating history: the initial struggle for access, battles to tame the bogs, later challenges of path erosion and the fluctuating circumstances of the rural hostel. Above all else however this is a book about Pennine Way people - from crusading ramblers to resourceful B&B landladies, hard working rangers to fanatical trail walkers. Their conversations and memories are woven into the narrative to give an account of the changing fortunes of the path and its special significance. Personal, thoughtful and often humorous, The Pennine Way - the Path, the People, the Journey is an exploration of our desire for challenge and adventure, the stimulation of wild places and how a long journey on foot through our own country still resonates today. It will appeal to people who have walked or are preparing to walk the Pennine Way, as well as to those with an interest in the history and legacy of this iconic path.

The Pennine Way. The grandfather of walking trails in the UK. For over 60 years walkers have been drawn to its journey across wild and empty moorland, murky bogs, cloud covered summits and endless rain. Yet somehow it has a hypnotic charm that persuades people to walk it, even if they never intended to do so. People like Andrew Bowden. Despite having absolutely no intent at all of walking the whole thing, somehow a two day jaunt in the Yorkshire Dales became an epic journey over several years. The Pennine Way grabbed him by the lapels – or should that be, the Gore-Tex jacket – and made the convincing case for walking between Edale and Kirk Yetholm. Somehow. And despite regularly being soaked to the bone in heavy rain, almost losing boots in sticky mud, getting stuck in a bog, and – on one memorable occasion – being snowed in, in a remote village in Northumberland, somehow he kept going, got to the end, and lived to tell the tale. See You in Kirk Yetholm is that tale. The tale of a walk that did its uttermost to put him off, but never succeeded.

Mark Wallington has a dream. He is going to change the face of British comedy. Unfortunately for the residents of north London, he's going to finance this dream by becoming a gardener. The result is The Day Job, an account of a year spent working in other people's gardens: people like Mrs Fleming who is convinced there is buried treasure in the bottom bed; Mr Walters who is trying to create a fascist state policed by gnomes in his well-guarded plot in Gospel Oak; Mrs Glover who is probably the most attractive woman living in Britain; and poor Mr Nugent, who likes to save his urine in jam jars and pour it over his compost. Over four seasons Wallington crosses Hampstead Heath from job to job. He survives brushes with the evil contract gardeners who keep trying to knock him off his bicycle. He strives to impress literary agent Herman Gapp who might represent him - depending on what sort of job he does on Gapp's Alpine Terrace. He even finds time to fall for a housecleaner-cum-actor named Helen, as he becomes part of a strange band of artistes, each with a day job of their own, all waiting for that first break. This is the story of long nights spent in the back room of a pub trying to write unsolicited scripts, and of much longer days spent trying to understand the British and their strange obsession with gardening.

Why would anyone want to switch from doing moderate, two-mile pub walks to trekking an arduous 289 miles along the South West Coast Path?

See what happens when it all goes pear-shaped for Tony, from leaky boots to lost hankies, from a broken cross-trainer to sleeping rough in a church. Will he overcome his obsession or slip seamlessly into life as a hobo?

Boogie is an unattractive but street-wise mongrel from Stockwell, used to travelling everywhere on London Transport. His two-legged companion is Mark. This is a heroic study of survival against the odds, as together they take a journey, up hill and down dale, with rucksacks full of kennomeat, along Britain's longest coastal footpath - from Somerset to Devon, from Cornwall to Dorset.

Happy Stories, Funny Stories, Sad Stories - But Always True Stories About Living with Rescue Dogs. “Tears & Laughter” “Heartwarming & Captivating.” Katie Woods grew up with animals; as a little girl, her best friend and guardian was a dog. Growing up, nothing changed and over more than twenty years, she adopted or rescued a pot pourri of dogs, from a three-legged terrier to a ten stone Rottweiler. This is the story of her journey through life with some of the mutts and mongrels who shared it; from the alluring to the alarming, the tranquil to the timid, the serene to the certifiable. Meet Katie’s dogs from over the years; Fudge, the geriatric labrador, Samson, the ten stone Rottweiler found abandoned and dangerous; but most of all, meet “The Gang of Four”, Seamus, Shannon, Minnie, and Duncan the Canine Tripod”. All Shelter Dogs, but all unique and all with very different backgrounds and personalities: Seamus, abandoned, Shannon, abused by a paedophile, Minnie, condemned for aggression, and Duncan, the puppy amputee. They bonded with each other and with Katie in a unique relationship that was “The Gang of Four.” Read their story for an unforgettable experience. Reviews: Five Stars "Tears & laughter - A 'Must Read' book" Laurie Lawrence “Brilliant! Most enjoyable heartwarming read by an author who is totally chilled and at home with her dogs and nature ........ Katie's personality shines through, which has helped me to try to "chill a little more" over my two dogs, rescued from the vile puppy farm trade. You will shed a tear or two, but you will also smile and chuckle your way through these pages. Read this on e-book, but now ordered in paperback ... no more 'battery running low' just as I'm wanting to turn the page for more!” Five Stars "A Heartwarming Read" Sandra S “Just finished this wonderful book, The Long, The Short and The Tall. A really good read for anyone especially animal lovers, it has everything, comical in parts, gut wrenching in others & so sad you could cry. Katie’s writing is awe inspiring, I felt as though I was actually there with her on her walks with her Gang of Four! I loved it & can't wait for when her life with her fur babies continues....”

From the author of the bestselling 500 Mile Walkies, this is the true story of one man and his bike ... It was a cold, bleak, British summer morning when intrepid Mark set out to travel the seventeen-hundred miles to Lapland on his bicycle. The land of reindeer nomads and the Midnight Sun had him under its spell. Suitably equipped with a new locknut A and pivot bolt B, a compass, a pair of sunglasses with only one lens and a Norwegian phrasebook, he was soon to discover the joys of Central Milton Keynes, win a marathon he never ran in Brassington, become stranded on the Yorkshire Dales, pick raspberries in Northumbria and finally catch a train from Newcastle - back to London! His dreams of obtaining a genuine reindeer hatstand were shattered forever!
