New book published featuring walks starting and finishing in Richmond

Richmond information volunteers meet up at The Station to celebrate the publication of Richmond Walks.

The Richmond Information Centre has published a new book featuring walks that start and finish in  the town.

Richmond Walks contains four easy walks that aim to offer a mixture of both town and country scenery.

All four walks are based upon circular routes that begin and finish in Richmond.

The book has been published after numerous requests for ideas for walks to volunteers at the information centre, which is based in the library.

“After asking for maps, parking discs and places to eat, visitors are keen to find out where they can take a good walk,” says Donald Cline, one of the centre’s volunteer.

“Whether guests are just in town for a few hours or their stay in Richmond is a bit longer, having a concise walking guide should fill a real gap and hopefully provide visitors with some beautiful experiences they’ll remember.”

Each walk has a step-by-step route description.

There are also some original maps with lots of new photographs that show readers what they can expect from each walk.

Richmond Walks has been produced by the volunteers in the information centre along with other local contributors.

The venture has been supported by Altberg, Richmond’s own boot-maker plus other local businesses.

The guide sells for £1 and is available from the Richmond Information Centre, Castle Hill Book Shop and other outlets in town.
