Nidderdale and Ripon - Eastern Yorkshire Dales

Nidderdale and Ripon - Eastern Yorkshire Dales

by: Paul Hannon
The Eastern Yorkshire Dales includes the major valley of Nidderdale and the lower reaches of Wensleydale, almost all set within an extensive Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty adjoining the National Park. This full colour guide describes 25 great walks, well-illustrated and concisely described, which lead you through some stunning landscapes of woodland, riverbank, parkland and moorland.

Explore the magnificence of Fountains Abbey and the splendour of Studley Royal; also the fine cathedral city of Ripon and the absorbing old market town of Masham. Discover the natural delights of Brimham Rocks, Guise Cliff and How Stean Gorge, and the less frequented charms of the Pott Valley, Fountains Earth Moor and Eavestone Lake.
Amble around Nidderdale's 'capital' of Pateley Bridge, and a wealth of colourful stone-built villages such as Sawley and Ripley, Ramsgill and Lofthouse, West Tanfield and Bewerley.

Route finding instructions are provided in black text interspersed with background notes in a maroon text. Each walk entry provides start location grid references and post codes, distance and OS Explorer map references. An OS map is recommended as only simple location maps are provided in the guide.
