Harrogate and Ilkley

Harrogate and Ilkley

by Paul Hannon
At the heart of Yorkshire, the colourful towns of Harrogate and Ilkley sit amid a remarkably diverse countryside stretching from world-famous Ilkley Moor to beautiful Harlow Carr Gardens. This book contains 25 great walks, well-illustrated and concisely described, which lead you through some stunning landscapes of woodland, riverbank, gritstone outcrops, parkland, reservoirs and moorland.

Explore the absorbing market towns of Knaresborough, Otley and Wetherby; the Washburn Valley with its dazzling chain of man-made lakes; the timeless splendour of Harewood Park. Discover the natural delights of the Cow and Calf Rocks, Otley Chevin and Almscliff Crag, and the less frequented charms of Spofforth Pinnacles, Beamsley Beacon and the Nidd Gorge. Amble around a wealth of colourful stone- built villages such as Follifoot, Timble, Kirkby Overblow and Sicklinghall, and find solitude on Denton Moor, Hanging Moor and the Wharfe's banks.

The book has a short introduction and an area map showing the walk locations. Each of the walks begins with a panel giving distance, start location with grid reference and post code and the relevant OS Explorer map sheet number. A summary of the main features of the walk follows this and is printed in burgundy italics to distinguish it from the following detailed route finding text. Each walk is presented on a two page spread which includes an outline map of the route and a colour photograph.
