This book was fab because of the humour and for Mark's honesty about the people he met along the way and the things he encountered. Their titanium Siphon has its faults, but these are mostly balanced out by simplicity, small size, light weight, robustness and performance. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs to escape to abit of comedy and simplicity and i can promise it wont fail to put a smile on your face. A gentle meander around the south west peninsular with one man and his dog during the period of time when the rest of England was getting all agitated about a few wind swept sheep farms in the South Atlantic. Not exactly as Mark had planned, however: this time his companion was to be the delectable Jennifer - but she was held up at the office, and when Boogie was dropped off at the kennels the other dogs complained.

This is a nice restful, mildly amusing story of a man and a dog trekking along the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. One was a new purchase while another has rarely been outside any gear list I have compiled over the past decade.Mile Walkies' tells of how the author decided to walk from Minehead to Poole, following the coast line through Devon, Cornwell and Dorset. Nevertheless, it is a very entertaining read, and probably the book I have read more often than any other. Three Points of the Compass dives into the history of a post box originally destined for overseas but instead found its way on to British streets. Really interesting to read about the villages and coastline on your 500 Mile walk, I would watch it if it was a film or even a series. I laughed out loud, perhaps because I've walked a long distance trail, or perhaps because I walk with a dog, or perhaps, this fella just has a humorous way of seeing things.

Three decades later, I'm chortling over this book at a second-hand book stall and the nice lady in charge lets me have it for free. Raynor Winn mentions it in The Salt Path as being a book she’d read years before starting out on her own walk along the path.Three Points of the Compass sets out on a winter wander from London to Birmingham along the Grand Union Canal. A thoroughly enjoyable read that has cemented my desire to trek one of the long distance paths here, in more than one day increments. Three Points of the Compass is not a particularly doggy type chap, nor is this book particularly well written. Not only does Mark Wallington's writing just reflect the mentality of every dog owner he gives such a rich characterisation to Boogie the dog that makes him just as relateable.
