Roger Noyce

Roger Noyce was born near Stratford-upon-Avon and educated at King Edward VI Grammar School. He has had several books published in the insurance world, and in 1992 won the Morgan Owen Gold Medal for his book Insurance and The Environment. Since taking early retirement, Roger has turned his literary skills to his passion for the countryside, and is now the successful author of a number of walking guides. Roger is an experienced and enthusiastic walker who frequently walks in the Peak District, the Cotswolds and the Heart of England, having walked the Cotswold and the Heart of England Ways on three separate occasions. He has walked Wainwright's Coast to Coast and has completed a 1400 mile 'Walking Way' route from Land's End to John O'Groats. Overseas, Roger has walked in the Alps, the Pyrenees and the Cevennes in France, and holds special memories of the Himalayas and the Inca Trail in Peru. Future plans include walking in Vietnam and, in the UK, Offas' Dyke Path, the Worcestershire Way and the Wychavon Way. He is Chairman of Stratford Group of the Rambler's Association.
