‘You walk with this landscape taking with you whatever it has to give that day, a poem to RAIN, the cotton grass on Black Hill, the autumnal golden hour in Hebden Dale the trees bursting forth with reds and golds. And I think we also give a little of ourselves back by simply enjoying being there and savouring the memory of our encounter.
Imagine a walk that takes in a landscape steeped with literature, art, community, and a brass band outside a pub selling real ale. That is the South Pennines.’ Paul Besley 2020
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.
