This new title is the latest in the new series of Paul Hannon's walking guides. A range of enhancements see a more logical geographical spread featuring not only ever popular Calderdale itself, but also the countryside running south to the Holme and Colne Valleys of Kirklees into the Peak District National Park. Included are the towns of Hebden Bridge, Todmorden, Holmfirth and Marsden. This book includes the whole area of the previous title `Calderdale' along with the Yorkshire side of the long out-of-print `Southern Pennines'. All the routes have been re-walked and updated, with the addition of several new walks. The walks include such iconic landmarks as Hardcastle Crags, Stoodley Pike, Marsden Moor, Castle Hill and Shibden Dale. In addition to being far more visually appealing than their predecessors, with the use of colour throughout and a more modern house style, these new titles feature a lower cover price than the old series.
This book provides 25 enjoyable outings amid a rich variety of scenery. A collection of 40 colour photographs depict features and landscapes along the routes, while the concise route descriptions are complemented by a wealth of background information.
