Sounds like the sort of job that my late dad would have loved!
As a country man by birth, he was never happier than when out and about walking in the countryside and his favourite period at work was when he was 'loaned' from his job as a land surveyor at the local council to the county council so that he could survey all the footpaths in Bedfordshire to establish which ones were still passable and which had become either overgrown or had been ploughed up.
He always came back from his forays with numerous stories to tell of the people he had met and things he had seen and was absolutely in his element.
Come to think of it, I wouldn't mind the job myself if work and family commitments didn't make it impossible!


I've been waiting for this to come into paperback.

What a wonderful way to spend the summer. But..... have just ordered the book and will have to enjoy the Old Ways from my garden (possibly!) chair.


Your father's job sounds wonderful, Liz.


A great opportunity for a student, say, or an aspiring nature/travel writer.

Thanks for the link. I've passed it on to a couple of lads I know who have just finished their degrees.


Great! Good luck to them.
