West Sussex Walks feature in new book

Much-loved local author Richard Williamson is releasing a book of his most popular walks – and you can be a part of it.

Published by Chichester-based firm Summersdale Publishing in conjunction with this newspaper, 52 Favourite West Sussex Walks will feature a trip for every week of the year, complete with hand-drawn route map.

Richard’s knowledge and love of the timeless South Downs landscape and its varied flora, fauna and stories combine with practical notes on routes that can be covered easily in an afternoon.

If you pre-order your copy before January 5, your name will be printed at the back of the book.

To order 52 Favourite West Sussex Walks, which will be available in all good bookshops from March 5, 2012, send your name, address and daytime phone number to the Observer, along with a cheque for £9.99 made payable to Johnston Press.

The address to send your details to is: Unicorn House, Eastgate Square, Chichester PO19 1JN – don’t worry, we won’t keep your details afterwards.
