Top 10 Walks: Yorkshire Dales: Dales and Valleys



This lovely pocket size book describes the ten best short circular walks in the Yorkshire Dales’ dales and valleys.

The focus in the Yorkshire Dales tends to be on a trio of much-loved valleys: Swaledale, Wensleydale and Wharfedale. Yet, broadening the gaze, one finds other equally spellbinding valleys, such as Airedale, Ribblesdale, the Rawthey and Dentdale. To the north, the bounding valleys of the Eden and Lune stretch the beauty of the National Park into wider horizons of pastoral serenity.

Here are walks for quiet enjoyment and seasonal beauty, where nature still reigns amid traditional patterns of farming practice. Solid stone barns and field walls characterise the dale bottoms; and the flora of the dales is wonderfully diverse: many a meadow retains its native herbal mix — yielding a delightful aroma at haytime.



One of six books in the new Top 10 Walks: Yorkshire Dales series.

This attractive and cleverly structured guidebook gives walkers the ten best walks to the Yorkshire Dales’ finest dales and valleys in a handy, pocketable format.

With clear information, an overview and introduction for each walk, expertly written numbered directions, Ordnance Survey maps, eye-grabbing panoramic photographs, and interpretation of points of interest along the way, these guides set a new standard in clarity, appeal and ease-of-use.
