Roaming Midsomer

Local historian, author and Haddenham resident, Martin Andrew, has recently published his second book (with co-author Chris Behan) offering easy walking routes though our local countryside, and especially the villages and rural locations featuring prominently in the TV series 'Midsomer Murders'.

Roaming Midsomer is the perfect follow-up to the successful Exploring Midsomer, which enticed lovers of Midsomer Murders and rural England to go and enjoy the beautiful 'Midsomer' for themselves.

This compilation of interesting and pleasant walks offers plenty to do, see, eat and drink while exploring the area, with each walk based around locations used in the TV series. Most walking books are designed for the serious explorer, but this guide is Sunday afternoon friendly with a simple, modern and easy-to-follow style, including postcodes for all the eating and drinking establishments.

Chris Behan and Martin Andrew, both residents of the area for nearly forty years, have used their intimate knowledge of 'Midsomer' to create a book that is essential for fans of Midsomer Murders and sure to enchant all those who love these rural locations, steeped as they are in 'Midsomer' lore.

Sounds like a good book to have available, for your own use or those of your visitors. You can obtain a copy on Amazon here.
