50 Walks in North Yorkshire

50 Walks in North Yorkshire

by: David Winpenny
North Yorkshire is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is typical of the Yorkshire Dales; a place of contrasts and discoveries, history and legend. The area is largely rural, with historic York its only sizeable city. Its two National Parks, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, occupy much of the two ends of the county. The Howardian Hills and Nidderdale are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In its far south western corner North Yorkshire also takes in part of the Wolds.

One of the AA County Walks series, this guide explores some of the best of North Yorkshire's countryside. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments.

The walk locations include: Muston; Scarborough; Robin Hood's Bay; Whitby; Fylingdales; Thixendale; Goathland; Staithes; Lastingham; Castle Howard; Rosedale Abbey; Sherriff Hutton; Cockayne; York; Roseberry Topping; Wistow; Byland Abbey; Swainby; Boltby; Thorpe Underwood; Thirsk; Fountains Abbey; Richmond; Grewelthorpe; Middleham; Greenhow; Reeth; Bolton Abbey; Upper Nidderdale; West Burton; Hubberholme; Old Gang; Semerwater; Keld; Malham; Pen-y-Ghent; Gargrave; Austwick; Ribblehead; Ingleton.
