Book of the Month: Day Walks in the South Pennines

Day Walks in the South Pennines
The South Pennines is a landscape hidden in plain sight. Passed by thousands commuting along the M62 each day, who know nothing of its wilderness, deep valleys, rough moorland and industrial heritage, the South Pennines is where society began. It was at the heart of the textile industry during the Industrial Revolution and the Co-operative Group, the building societies, the trade unions and even the NHS can find roots there.
Knowledgeable and experienced author Paul Besley has written a new guide to the area. Day Walks in the South Pennines features twenty circular walks between five and eighteen miles in length spread across West Yorkshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester.
