  • Discover the very best walks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. These ten themed walks explore the contrasting faces of the Yorkshire Dales — the gentle flower-filled Dales and the wild and rugged uplands with their drystone walls, waterfalls, limestone pavements and iconic peaks. Find unspoiled pubs and friendly teashops. Visit tiny villages, castles, churches and ancient abbeys. Stroll beside crystal rivers or thrill to the thunder of some of Britain’s mightiest waterfalls. Conquer the Three Peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside. Or just enjoy the quiet countryside and spectacular scenery. Every walk here is a walk to savour.
  • This lovely little book will take you on short circular walks to some of the Yorkshire Dales' most distinctive pubs and inns. The pubs of the Yorkshire Dales reflect both the area and the local people: occasionally gritty and challenging, sometimes uncompromising but essentially hugely welcoming and full of character. Some of England’s best watering holes stand here beside country lanes and village greens as they have for centuries past, gathering and exuding that unique amalgam which defines a pub. The flagged floors, the winter fires, the lamplight pooling onto lanes through bottle-glass windows, the quirky bars; that happy jigsaw of time and place which makes rambling to and between them one of life’s great pleasures.
  • This pretty little book gives you short circular walks to the most spectacular waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales. Geology and the way it shapes the land have created a countryside tailor-made for the development of waterfalls. The gritstone fells and moors gather copious rainfall, which they shed along countless becks and rivers that erode the rock into twisting gills and valleys. Where localised geological conditions bring together the grits and limestones, differential erosion creates bands of resistant rocks over which the becks plunge as hidden cataracts and waterfalls, often called forces in the Yorkshire Dales. Each has its own unique form and atmosphere to discover and explore.
