Synopsis

The Hills of Northern England and the Isle of Man Northern England and the Isle of Man A Guide to Summits Under 2000ft by Alasdair Dibb

Around the well-trodden mountains of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, the lower heights and foothills form some of Britains finest summits. The colourful wooded, cragged hills and moorland of the forgotten part of Lakeland provide magnificent views of their higher neighbours, whilst the unspoilt hills of the Isle of Man form a huge tract of walking country. This volume describes the ascent of each of the distinct summits across the region that are below 2000 feet in altitude. With route maps and photographs, the walks in this book range from gentle strolls to rewarding hikes. It is divided into five sections, each one beginning with an explanation of the area's geology to enhance walkers' understanding of the landscape they are exploring. It also contains an introduction and advice on footpaths and rights of way, plus tips on hill safety and conditions for both the novice and experienced walker alike. It provides information on the hill names, details of local accommodation and a list of contacts.
