Nick Hunt will join Mr B’s walking book club ‘The Paperback Ramblers’ for an exhilarating walk across Bath’s uppermost reaches. Nick is the author of the wonderful travel books Walking the Woods and Water and Where the Wild Winds Are. The Paperback Ramblers is a book club like no other: instead of meeting in a bookshop or pub we meet in the open air. We enjoy discussing books with a nature or travel angle, as well as novels with a sense of place. For this meeting we’ll be discussing Nick’s latest travel book Where the Wild Winds Are: Walking Europe’s Winds from the Pennines to Provence; you’ll have an opportunity to quiz the author and chat to fellow readers while enjoying a pleasant circular walk with great views of the city and its surroundings.

The walk will take us on a circular route from the Park & Ride to Prospect Style through meadows and taking in the fantastic views.
