Top 10 Walks: Yorkshire Dales: Fells and Moors



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.



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 fells and moors 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.

“Despite the book’s small size and low cost, there is nothing cheap about its production values. This is a lovely guidebook.”
