The Howgills form part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The fells are an important study area, especially in relation to modern process geomorphology but also in the context of environmental change. The purpose of this field guide is to give background for students of geomorphology and late Quaternary environmental change.

Adrian Harvey is a retired Professor of Geomorphology from the University of Liverpool. He has published many research papers on Howgill geomorphic processes, and, often with colleagues, on the Holocene landform sequence. He has led field trips to the area for more than forty years.
