These are not guidebooks about which path to follow or what hills to climb, these are books that cover the management and development of outdoor access.
Publications are grouped by subject area and then by decade.
Each entry follows the same layout and is organised thus:
Author, (Year of publication), Title, Publisher, followed by a paragraph about the book. This may be the advertising paragraph from the book cover or a short review.
Where possible a weblink is included, but some of the publications are not available online so you will need to use your favourite bookseller to get a copy. Some are no longer in print so you may need to go to a real bricks and mortar library to find a copy.
Signage is one of the most important tools for the management of responsible access. It is first and foremost a simple and effective method of communication between the people who own or manage land and water and those who take access on it. Signs offer an obvious welcome and have a significant role to play in promoting paths and encouraging and supporting people in their use. This will help everyone to take access responsibly and allow land and access managers to carry out operations safely and provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
This guidance covers all aspects of outdoor access signage and is aimed at access staff, countryside rangers, land managers, community groups (including health walk co-ordinators) and anybody involved in path or site management. It supersedes and greatly expands on the advice given in the Advisory Signage Guide published by Paths for All and Scottish Natural Heritage in June 2007. Weblink.
