Walkers Guide to the Isle of WightWalkers Guide to the Isle of Wight The Isle of Wight contains some of the finest countryside walking in the whole of the UK, with much to offer, whatever your ability. The Island's concentration of diverse landscapes, historical sites, Victorian seaside resorts and sleepy villages, in an area measuring only 13 miles (21 km) by 23 miles (37km) at its widest point, means that although distances are large enough to provide a challenge, even short routes never lack variety. This manageable scale combined with a good infrastructure of footpaths and bridleways make it a ramblers paradise, not to mention the island's enviable sunshine record. These walks have been specially devised to take advantage of the island's most outstanding scenery and amenities. This book contains 32 walks of varying standards.

History of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight ConstabularyHistory of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary This book takes the reader through the enthralling, and often surprising, history of Hampshire policing between 1839 and 1966. Any fond notions the reader may have that the task of maintaining law and order in rural areas was in any way tranquil or mundane will quickly be corrected. Those early police officers endured harsh discipline, demanding working practices and punishing working hours - often without any public support. Included in this unique study is a wealth of material from former officers' records and memoirs, from which the author has vividly recreated the working lives and adventures of those officers who served before 1967, when all Hampshire police forces were required to amalgamate. Here, you will find stories of riots, murder and strikes, encompassing the breadth of both human endeavour and human failure. Throughout, the professionalism, loyalty and dignity of the former officers is epitomised. Ian A. Watt's comprehensively researched book was initially published in 1967. The Hampshire Constabulary Historical Society has commissioned this new edition in order to keep alive its valuable historical information and stunning illustrations, and to make the exciting history of ordinary Hampshire officers available to the public - whether local historian or crime aficionado - once more. It includes a comprehensive index and new illustrations. These fascinating tales of the 'beat bobbies' of yesteryear will appeal to anyone living in the Hampshire area or researching the history of British policing.
