North York Moors - Short Walks

North York Moors - Short Walks

by: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
This attractive full colour guide is the ideal companion for short walks, providing 20 splendid routes suitable for all the family. Features include clear and easy-to-follow instructions plus detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer mapping with the route clearly highlighted, and specially commissioned photographs.

There are twenty routes to choose from, colour coded by length and difficulty; green for easy; blue for modest length with some climbing and red for more challenging walks. An introductory chapter gives an overview of this dramatic and beautiful area. Essential practical information at the beginning of each walk includes start location, distance, time, parking, public transport, refreshments, route features and GPS waypoints. There are notes about places of interest and full colour photographs.

Walks in this collection reveal some of the Moor's most outstanding natural features; the dramatic Hole of Horcum, the enigmatic rocks at Bridestones and the splendid tumbling waters of Falling Foss. As well as exploring the high moors, where the strange calling of the grouse is never far away, wander through verdant vales such as the beautiful Farndale. Follow other walks to discover some fascinating ancient buildings; the atmospheric ruins of the great abbey communities of Rievaulx and Byland or the stark, defensive medieval stone piles of Pickering and Helmsley.
