Synopsis

Yorkshire Dales by David Leather

Produced in association with the Ramblers, this walking guide covers the popular Yorkshire Dales area and combines detailed route descriptions with information on the local history and wildlife. The magnificent Yorkshire Dales include impressive limestone formations, beautiful waterfalls and shadowy peaks. Picturesque dales such as Swaledale, Wharfedale and Dentdale meander through the area, where abbey ruins, ancient farmhouses and villages wait to be discovered. The introduction gives information about the topography, geology and history of the area, and describes the flora and fauna inhabiting it. *The main section of the book comprises 30 walks, suitable for all abilities, from young children to experienced walkers. Each walk has a key illustrating principal features, such as level of difficulty and type of terrain, as well as a fact file summarising useful information, such as start and finish points, duration, safety advice and points of interest. *Illustrated with colour maps from the Ordnance Survey each walk is then described in detail with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. As well as route descriptions, the text gives the history of the main landmarks along the way and information about the natural history of the area, and is accompanied by stunning colour photographs. NEW FOR 2010 * Overview map on inside front cover showing start points of the walks. * Walks are colour coded to indicated level of difficulty: green for the simpler walks, then amber for moderate walks, then red for the more challenging walks aimed at more experienced walkers. * Front cover flap contains the key to symbols used in the text and on the route maps.
