Bowland Walking Country

Bowland Walking Country

by: Paul Hannon
The Forest of Bowland is one of England's largest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty with tiny Slaidburn its capital. It is a landscape of both grandeur and isolation, of gritstone fells and heather grass moor, and of fine ancient woodlands within its foothill fringes. It provides the finest walking country in Lancashire.

Stride out over the spacious uplands of Parlick, Clougha Pike and Ward's Stone, with wide panoramas of dales and coast. Explore valleys rich in woodland and wildlife, from the Brock and the Lune to Bowland's special river, the renowned charm of the sparkling Hodder.

This guide contains 22 great walks, concisely described, leading you to the heart of Yorkshire/Lancashire border country. A brief introductory chapter describes the region and practicalities. For each walk the route instructions are supported with a basic sketch map and clearly identifiable notes on points of interest along the way. Distance, starting point grid reference and access and OS map sheet numbers are given for each walk. The book is illustrated with pen and ink drawings.
