Great Mountain Days in the Pennines
50 classic hillwalking routes
By Terry Marsh
An inspirational guidebook to 50 classic walks on the rolling Pennine landscape. The graded routes, between 6 and 13 miles in length, cover classic Pennine fells and moorland such as Whernside, Ilkley Moor and Pendle Hill; exploring the North and South Pennines, Yorkshire Dales, Howgills and Dark Peak. Many routes are also suited to fell running.
SeasonsThe Pennines can be tackled whatever the time of year, although the highest summits and the remote moors can be problematic in winter conditions or poor visibility
CentresWalks are grouped into five areas: the North Pennines, the Howgills, the Yorkshire Dales, the South Pennines and the Dark Peak
DifficultyWalks are graded from 'Moderate' to 'Strenuous' but unlike other mountainous areas where the ability to cope on rock and steep slopes is required, among the Pennines there also needs to be awareness of the deceptive nature of the landscapes, which, in spite of relative proximity to towns and cities, often feel remarkably remote; a sure grasp on navigational skills and self-protection is essential at all times
Must SeeFrom the highest summits of the Pennines, to the seductive valleys of the Yorkshire Dales and the rugged landscapes of the South Pennines, this guide embraces all that is inspiring about the rolling Pennine landscapes
