This work talks about the exhilarating walking in the area between the Yorkshire Dales and Hadrian's Wall. Wild moorland, beautiful riverside walks, woodlands, rich heritage - this uncrowded area has much to recommend it. The walks are a mixed bag, but they generally have a bias towards the wide-open moorlands and heights. This is what the North Pennines are all about - space, wilderness and exposure to the elements. There are a few easy, low-level walks suitable for the cautious or for use in nasty weather. Many of the higher routes aren't too difficult as they are routed along good clear tracks and paths. Levels of difficulty are given as easy, moderate or difficult. Most of the walks are circular and range from 4 to 13 miles. There are 42 day-walks in the guide, then a section of six longer walks presented in outline form only.
