Waterside Walks in West Yorkshire

Waterside Walks in West Yorkshire

by: Peter Young
Water always adds something special to a walk and West Yorkshire has many notable waterside landscapes to explore. The twenty walks in this book are all between 3 and 7 miles in length and include some of the most memorable scenery in England. Using this book as a guide, you can stroll along delightful stretches of the Wharfe, Calder and Aire rivers, the Leeds to Liverpool Canal, the Rochdale Canal, and the Aire and Calder Navigation. There are many beautiful lakes and reservoirs to enjoy, including Ponden Reservoir, Ogden Water and Waterloo Lake in Roundhay Park.

Each carefully described route includes information such as how to get to the start, where to park and where to go for refreshments. For greater clarity, the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs which correspond with numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. There are also places of interest to visit along the way such as the atmospheric Bronte Bridge and Waterfalls; the amazing Five Rise Locks near Bingley; Harewood House and grounds, where you may see red kites; and the historic village of Saltaire, a designated World Heritage Site. The book is illustrated with colour photographs.
