Cols & Passes Of The Bristish Isles
A col is the lowest point on the saddle between two mountains. Graham Robb has spent years uncovering and cataloguing the 2,002 cols and 105 passes scattered across the British Isles. Some of these obscure and magical sites are virgin cols that have never been crossed. Dozens are recorded only in ballads or monastic charters, while the eleven cols of Hadrian's Wall are practically unknown. These underappreciated slices of natural beauty provide a new way of looking at British history, and a challenge for cyclists and walkers.
