South Yorkshire - From the Peak to the Plains

South Yorkshire - From the Peak to the Plains

by: Paul Hannon
The county of South Yorkshire stretches from the dramatic eastern moorlands of the Peak District National Park through colourful countryside to canal towpaths on the spacious plains.

This guidebook contains 25 great walks, well-illustrated with colour photographs and concisely described, which lead you through some absorbing landscapes of woodland, riverbank, parkland, reservoir, moorland and old railways. There are overview sketch maps to compliment the navigation text. Notes on points of specific interest are included within the text, but printed in red to distinguish them from route finding.

Explore the Pennine valleys of Rivelin, Ewden and Bradfield Dale, and the open spaces of Hathersage Moor, Wharncliffe Chase, Broomhead Moor, Derwent Edge and Midhope Moors.

Discover natural delights at Barnburgh Cliff, Silksone Fall and Old Moor, parkland and follies at Wentworth Woodhouse, and the charms of Don Gorge, Dearne Valley and chesterfield Canal.

Walk through history at Conisbrough Castle, Roche Abbey and Monk Bretton Priory; visit industrial heritage at Worsbrough, Elsecar and Wortley; and savour a wealth of colourful villages such as Bradfield, Fishlake, Cawthorne and Bolsterstone.
