Walks in Dales Country An illustrated guide to 30 scenic walks by Jack Keighley

A guidebook to 30 family walks throughout the Yorkshire Dales, England. These 30 circular walks range from 41/2 to 81/2 miles, and explore the idyllic Yorkshire Dales countryside both within and beyond the National Park. They have been selected to appeal to all tastes, and vary from simple valley strolls (ideal as family half-day rambles) to strenuous fell expeditions. Each walk has its own individual character and charm, and collectively they incorporate every type of landscape to be found in the Dales. The book is hand-written and profusely illustrated in Jack Keighley's highly distinctive style. Each chapter contains: parking information, a meticulously detailed map, concise route directions, a general description of the terrain and notes on features of interest.


'Walks in Dales Country which details 30 walks, ranging in length from four miles to eight, covers some of the country's most scenic areas and a range of attractions from fells, caves, limestone scars, river gorges, waterfalls, picturesque villages and ancient churches, castles and abbeys. Easy to read, the book, which is produced in larger format than his previous walking guides, is packed full of excellent maps and line drawings plus intriguing extra touches for which Mr Keighley has become renowned by his followers. His sense of humour results in extra advice not usually to be found in other guides covering the area - the route around Blubberhouses suggests: 'The walks calls for two perilous crossings of the A59 racetrack. An ability to sprint to Olympic standard would be advantageous.'

-'a fence-style and wall-stile await you with evil intent. The former has coat-ripping spikes of barbed wire. The latter is an awkward little b*! where your beloved author once nearly broke his neck.

Keld, Barbon, Burtersett, Jervaulx and Fountains Abbeys, Pateley Bridge, Grassington, Malham, Rylstone, Ilkley and Thornton in Craven are among the areas covered.
