A newly-published book tells of the adventures of a walker and cyclist who set out to climb to the highest point in every county in Britain for charity.
Heights of Madness by Johnny Muir was reviewed in the Daily Telegraph, which said the author had produced a "quietly inspirational and often funny account of his adventures in his homeland" and noted that his motivation was to redefine the word "adventure".
Mr Muir decided that he would get from one high point to the next by self-propelled means, which made walking or cycling his only options.
Those keen to try something similar may wish to invest in items varying from walking boots
to bike maintenance
gear.Ordnance Survey maps
will also be needed to help identify some of the less famous high spots.
While many counties have notable high points - such as Ben Nevis in the highlands or Scafell Pike in Cumbria - other are far less prominent due to their lack of height, such as Beacon Hill in Norfolk at 336 ft.
