A Whitchurch author has achieved a top five place in the recent 2010 Travel Press Awards.
Walk London, by Gill Knappett, was one of five finalists for Travel Guide Book of the Year.

The book features 15 walks which take in the City and beyond. Historic facts on iconic sites combine with quirky, less well-known stories to give a real sense of England’s capital with a very personal touch.

Each walk starts and ends at an Underground station, the routes are clearly explained and accompanied by beautifully illustrated maps.

Walk London (ISBN 978-1-84165-269-6) can be viewed on the website www.walklondon.co.uk.
