An inspirational guidebook to 50 great walks throughout the Pennines. A wide range of routes in this larger format book have been selected to help walkers explore all aspects of this beautiful upland area. The walks are all graded, from moderate to strenuous, and are between 6 and 13 miles long, with plenty of options for both first-time and more experienced walkers. Ranging between the North Pennines, Howgills, Yorkshire Dales, South Pennines and Dark Peak, this guide offers the best of the mass of fell and moor that makes up the backbone of England. Routes include Cross Fell, Wild Boar Fell, Ingleborough, Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent, Pendle Hill, Kinder Downfall and a traverse of Ilkley Moor and many are suitable for fell running. The circular walks are all graded, making this guidebook equally suitable for first-time and more experienced walkers looking to explore new corners of the Pennines. All routes are illustrated with 1:40,000 OS mapping and plenty of colour photography.
