Day Walks in the South Pennines features 20 circular walks between 5 and 18 miles (8km and 29 km) in length, spread across West Yorkshire, Lancashire and Greater Manchester. Researched and written by knowledgeable and experienced author Paul Besley, the walks range from gentle rambles to more challenging day walks, all through striking and varied terrain.
The routes are split into two geographical areas – Southern Walks, including routes around Dovestones, Ramsden Clough and Holmfirth; and Northern Walks, including routes around Hebden Bridge, Hardcastle Crags and Ilkley Moor.
Together with stunning photography, each route features Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps, easy-to-follow directions, details of distance and navigation information, and refreshment stops and local information.
Paul Besley is a writer who started exploring the British landscape whilst at school in the 1970s. His main focus of work is the interaction between human and land from the Neolithic period to the present day. His work has evolved into the study of how the physical environment imprints itself on humans and how we as a race respond. He lives close to the peat and gritstone of the Peak District with his wife, metalsmith Alison Counsell, their two pet dogs Monty and Olly, and his Mountain Rescue Search Dog, Scout.
