In this guidebook, 43 circular walks, ranging from 3-mile strolls to full-day adventures are explored in the northern and eastern Dales. Few areas in England are as appealing as the Yorkshire Dales and this volume of a two-part guide provides walkers with a comprehensive walking guide to the whole of the region.
Each valley has a character and history of its own and this guide covers the varied fell and dale landscapes of the Howgills, Mallerstang, Swaledale, Wensleydale, Coverdale and Nidderdale. Spectacular waterfalls, dramatic gorges, expansive heather moors, rich woodlands and colourful flower meadows are just some of the natural delights encountered along the way, while elsewhere intriguing relics of lead mining and quarrying scatter remote valleys and lonely hilltops.
The guidebook combines detailed route descriptions together with maps for every walk. It also includes information on points of interest along the way, as well as necessary practical information.
Walk 31 - Revised route description for passing the farm before crossing the river: "Guided by a sign to Middle Borwins, swing between the abutments of a dismantled bridge and then go right across the top of a field following the waymarks through a large gate into a paddock. Reaching the lean-to at the top end, bear left into a small enclosure and go through a small gate on the left down to a line of stepping stones across the river."
Walk 32 - Revised route description: “… eventually passing below a large house at Hill Top to reach a junction of tracks.
Carry on straight ahead for twenty metres to a kissing gate onto the lane, where you should turn left.
At the end by Old Cams House …”
The paragraph beginning “Guided by a sign” should be ignored.
Please note the route shown on the map for this walk is incorrect. The route line should continue directly from the disused railway line onto the track at SD 915 904, rather than passing through the farm at SD 914 903.
