This attractive pocket size book features the ten finest short circular walks on the fells and moors of the Yorkshire Dales.
The term ‘fell’ derives from the Norse settlers and was applied here to areas of upland pasture. While the Lake District is defined by its soaring ridges, the Dales, as their name implies, are an intricate pattern of valleys set in a muted moorland landscape.
Yet great hills exist — to enthral and enthuse even the most ardent hillgoer. There is no better way of grasping the scale, beauty and extent of the Yorkshire Dales than from this fabulous compact of high fell tops. Each rooted in a dale, each dignified with unique prospects, all meriting walking as a richly rewarding company of hills.
