Ilkley Moor Walking country

Ilkley Moor Walking country

by: Paul Hannon
Who has not heard of Ilkley Moor, that bracing tract of heather upland that stands for all that is best about Yorkshire, county of the broad acres? Far fewer, however, have set foot in this famous countryside where rolling moors fall to the rich valleys and stately parkland that surround the buzzing little town of Ilkley.

The 22 walks described in this guide lead you to the very heart of this famous Yorkshire district. Walk through history at Bolton Abbey and Skipton Castle; on Roman roads, packhorse trails and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. Discover the 'Lakeland' charms of the Washburn Valley, the delights of the Cow and Calf Rocks and Beamsley Beacon.

Each walk has clear route finding instructions and also includes information about points of interest. Distance, start grid references and access details plus OS map numbers are provided. Basic sketch maps and pen and ink illustrations are included.
