About this book

In this guide, Mary Welsh has devised 28 delightful circular walks that visit the region's waterfalls - from the famous falls of Cauldron Snout and High Force to other less well-known falls. Teesdale and the high Pennines is compelling walking country - wild and rough in winter, but welcoming in spring as the migrating birds return and the woodlands become a mosaic of soft greens. As with her other popular waterfall walks books, the author has recorded many details of the plant and animal life to be seen, from the summer flowers of the hay meadows to the changing colours of autumn trees.
