  • Overview

    For the purpose of this guidebook the term 'South Pennines' is taken to refer to the expanse of hill country that straddles the Lancashire/Yorkshire border between the Yorkshire Dales and Peak National Parks.

    These 30 circular walks range from four to eight and a half miles and explore an area of remarkably varied and contrasting landscapes. They have been selected to delight both experienced and novice walkers, and vary from simple valley strolls (ideal as family half-day rambles) to more challenging moorland expeditions.

    Hand-written and profusely illustrated in Jack Keighleyís highly distinctive style, each walk description contains parking information; a meticulously detailed map and concise route directions all together on the same page; a general description of the terrain, and notes on features of interest.
