Aire Valley and Bronte Country

Aire Valley and Bronte Country

by: Paul Hannon
The Aire Valley leads from the Yorkshire Dales at Gargrave through Skipton, Keighley and Bingley to the World Heritage Site of Saltaire, and includes iconic Haworth and the Worth Valley. This compact guide, one of the popular 'Walking in Yorkshire' series, contains 25 great walks, well-illustrated and concisely described. They lead you through some stunning landscapes of moorland, woodland and riverbank, and by canal towpath, waterfalls and reservoirs.

Explore the celebrated West Yorkshire landmarks of Five Rise Locks, Shipley Glen and Top Withins; the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Leeds-Liverpool Canal and the rivers Aire and Worth. Discover the natural delights of Haworth Moor, Windgate Nick, Harden Moor and Earl Crag, and the less frequented charms of Newsholme Dean, Sunnydale and the Druid's Altar. Amble around a wealth of stone-built villages such as Kildwick, Lothersdale, Stanbury and Micklethwaite, in the shadow of the colourful countryside of Farnhill Moor, Pinhaw Beacon and Baildon Moor, Ponden Clough, St Ives and Embsay Moor.

The book begins with a short introduction to the area. Each walk entry begins with a box giving distance, start location with grid reference and post code, OS Explorer map sheet number. A summary describes the features of the walk. This is followed by detailed navigation instructions and a coloured outline sketch map of the route. This text is interspersed with notes on points of interest printed in mauve italics to clearly separate it from the route instructions. The book includes many colour photographs.
