Yorkshire Dales: South and West

Yorkshire Dales: South and West

by: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
Few areas in England are so completely and immediately appealing as the Yorkshire Dales. Each valley has a character of its own, and this intimate and varied landscape harmonises, as nowhere else in the country, the work of nature and the hand of man. This guide takes you on an exploration of the dales and surrounding hills and moors within the southern and western quarters of the region, where you will find some of the most remarkable limestone landscape in the country.

Walks ranging from gentle two mile strolls to more strenuous day long rambles seek out the area's most attractive and fascinating features. The guide covers Wharfedale, Littondale, Malhamdale, Dentdale and Ribblesdale in 44 separate walks including the Yorkshire Three Peaks. Each walk chapter begins with practical information including distance, height gain, time and facilities on route, followed by a summary of the route describing its main features. Detailed route finding instructions are accompanied by coloured OS 1:50,000 maps. There are also numerous full colour photographs throughout the book making it a visually attractive guide.
