Contains over 30 circular walks ranging from 4.5 - 8.5 miles, both within and beyond the Yorkshire National Park.
'Walks in Dales Country which details 30 walks, ranging in length from four miles to eight, covers some of the country's most scenic areas and a range of attractions from fells, caves, limestone scars, river gorges, waterfalls, picturesque villages and ancient churches, castles and abbeys. Easy to read, the book, which is produced in larger format than his previous walking guides, is packed full of excellent maps and line drawings plus intriguing extra touches for which Mr Keighley has become renowned by his followers. His sense of humour results in extra advice not usually to be found in other guides covering the area - the route around Blubberhouses suggests: 'The walks calls for two perilous crossings of the A59 racetrack. An ability to sprint to Olympic standard would be advantageous.' Pinhaw Beacon -'a fence-style and wall-stile await you with evil intent. The former has coat-ripping spikes of barbed wire. The latter is an awkward little b*! where your beloved author once nearly broke his neck.' The hand-printed pages offer easy to follow route instructions, parking advice, excellent directions, map references and additional points of interest in an almost "I Spy" classic style. Keld, Barbon, Burtersett, Jervaulx and Fountains Abbeys, Pateley Bridge, Grassington, Malham, Rylstone, Ilkley and Thornton in Craven are among the areas covered.' (Lancashire Life 2002)
