Description - The Yorkshire Dales - North and East by Dennis Kelsall
This walking guidebook to the Yorkshire Dales offers 42 day walks and suggestions for longer treks in the north and east of the Dales National Park, including the Howgills, Mallerstang, Nidderdale, Wensleydale, Swaledale and Coverdale. The walking ranges between 3 and 12 miles, with advice on how to extend the routes. Each valley has a character of its own, and this intimate and varied landscape harmonises, as nowhere else in the country, the work of nature and the hand of man. This guide takes you on an exploration of the dales and surrounding hills and moors among some of the most remarkable limestone landscape in the country, illustrated with OS mapping and evocative photography. It is one of a two-volume series of walks in all of the Yorkshire Dales.
