High Point - A Guide to Walking the Summits of Great Britain's 85 Historic Counties Competition

Win copies of Vertebrate Publishing's guide to Walking Great Britain's Counties 'High Points' by Mark Clarke

In 2008 Mark Clarke embarked on a journey to visit the highest point in each of the 85 historic counties in Great Britain. Over the course of 4 years, he walked over 500 miles and climbed over 100,000 feet, sampling all that is great about Britain along the way.

Mark's journey took in the mountainous summits of Scotland and Wales as well as dozens of less visited high points. High Point is Mark's account of his experiences and the challenges he faced in his travels - including suffering a broken leg on a remote hillside in Scotland while walking alone. It is rich with historical information and observations about Britain's counties and serves as an indispensible guide to the historic and modern counties of Great Britain and their highest points.

Each county has its own gazeteer section with infomation about the county, the county top, Mark's ascent and local information. High point walk directions are accompanied by an Ordnance Survey map to help you plan your own High Point adventure.

We have 2 copies of each to give away.

Win yourself a copy to inspire a High Point adventure of your own.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to answer this one question:
