Synopsis

Walks in Limestone Country The Whernside, Ingleborough and Penyghent Areas of Yorkshire by Alfred Wainwright

Alfred Wainwright, author of the inimitable best-selling Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells, here describes thirty-four selected walks in the interesting limestone area around the Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales. Each has its particular charm or special objective. Each is the subject of a separate chapter containing a diagram, a map, and an illustrated narrative. Also included is a detailed description of the route of the marathon Three Peaks Walk. Walks in Limestone Country was first published in 1970. For this new edition, every footpath has been re-walked, and every map and diagram checked by Chris Jesty, who assisted with the maps on Wainwright's last two large-format books. It is now fully up to date for 21st century walkers. Also available: Walks on the Howgill Fells Cover photograph: Attermire Scar (c) Derry Brabbs

About the Author

ALFRED WAINWRIGHT was born in Blackburn in 1907. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life-long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 he began to devote every spare moment he had to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial Guides. He described these as his 'love letters' to the Lakeland Fells. Wainwright died in 1991 at the age of 84. CHRIS JESTY trained as a cartographer with the Ordnance Survey. He devised Scafell Pike Panorama, a guide to the view from the highest mountain in England, for which Wainwright provided illustrations. When Wainwright's health deteriorated, Chris helped him with the maps for two of his large-format books. Shortly before he died, Wainwright said that if ever the Pictorial Guides were to be revised, Chris Jesty should be given the job. He lives in Kendal.
