A Walk Through Britain

WAS £12.99 £6.49

Product description

"Not everyone would like to travel afoot from Land's End to John O'Groats, a trip of some 1100 miles, often saturated with the rains and mists of "England's green and pleasant land", sleeping under the stars on clear nights, and replenishing the inner man by taking pot luck with a diet hardly to be recommended. But that is what the intrepid John Hillaby did, and is the better for it today. Why did he do it? Just for the hell of it...." Illustrations are woodcuts and maps.
Binding tight. Pages clean but for a name at the top of the page inside the front board. There is shelf-wear to the top and bottom of the spine of the binding. The unclipped D/W shows shelf-wear at the edges and closed tears at the bottom of the back cover from which creases radiate.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop Hertford

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also offer a range of greetings cards for birthday and other occasions. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
