Layers of history unfold as John Dutton takes you on a fascinating tour of ancient highways now hidden by time and the changing use of the countyside. Ten years of research on old roads are brought together in this book where walkers can explore the landscape of North Wales with Mr Dutton as their guide. This book is a must for would-be historians and archaeologists or anyone interested in the effects of man upon the North Wales countryside. Ten metre wide Roman roads and reed covered highways appear as if by magic and soon you expect to see the glint of armour from a Roman legion in the distance or be held up at gunppoint by an 18th century highwayman. One can only wonder why these old ways weren't spotted before. Walks range from 3 to 10 miles with public transport, pubs and refreshment where possible.
