Julia Bradbury's Wainwright Walks: Coast to Coast, Julia Bradbury - The much-loved fellwalker Alfred Wainwright created one of the truly great walking challenges – to walk across the whole of England. The Coast to Coast route was AW’s last great venture and has become his greatest legacy to long distance walkers – a beautifully simple proposition, linking three national parks that lie between the Irish and the North Sea - The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The North Yorks Moors National Parks.
Accompanying the BBC television series, this book follows Julia Bradbury as she re-traces Wainwright’s grand traverse. The book collects together all six stages of the walk from the TV series, with Julia’s commentary on her experience of the walk accompanied by stills, evocative landscape photography, and AW’s celebrated line drawings. Julia crosses this changing landscape in sun, wind and rain, learns something of its history and meets the people that make up almost 200 miles of northern England’s most glorious countryside. Published April 13.

Short Walks, Yorkshire Dales, Dennis Kelsall - Many characteristics of the Yorkshire Dales alter day by day, changing with the seasons, the weather and the hour-making the area an ideal destination for the walker. The unique limestone landscape encompasses vast expanses of high, lonely moor and respectable-sized hills, but it is the intricate web of valleys such as Wharfedale and Swaledale that gives the area its name.

Spectacular waterfalls are another typical feature and this guide of 20 short walks in the Yorkshire Dales visits those at Aysgarth, Hardraw, Burton Force, Mill Gill and Catrigg Force.

The Yorkshire Dales: North and East

 

The Yorkshire Dales: South and West, Dennis and Jan Kelsall - Few areas in England are so completely and immediately appealing as that central portion of the Pennines known as the Yorkshire Dales. Even today, many of the valleys remain relatively isolated from each other and the wider world, which has enabled each to develop a unique character. The ancient arteries of paths, trackways and narrow lanes are an integral part of that charm and invite leisurely roaming on a journey of personal discovery. This book guides you on an exploration of the dales and surrounding hills and moors. More than 40 walks, ranging from gentle two-mile strolls to more strenuous day-long rambles, seek out the area's most attractive and fascinating features. Everywhere are stunning views and panoramic scenery and intriguing geological formations, characteristic of the Dales. Published May 08. K

This is the only guide available which describes the route in both directions. The Dales Way is one of the gentlest multi-day walks in Britain, suitable for all ages and an excellent introduction to long-distance walking.

Walk the Yorkshire Dales, John and Judi Johnson - Many of Yorkshire's half a million acres are over 600 metres, peaking at more than 700 metres above sea level. These are wild, bleak and barren places, commanding heights of peat moor and limestone crag, windswept, inspiring and dramatic. But for all these glorious uplands it's the dales - the valleys - which truly catch the imagination. As Cumbria has its Lake District, and Derbyshire its Peak District, so Yorkshire is justifiably famous for its 'valley district'; The Yorkshire Dales. We can't guarantee the warmth of the sun, but we can just about cast-iron guarantee the warmth of the welcome to anyone who's come to enjoy our beautiful dales. To those of us lucky enough to live here, it's simply God's Own Country, and we enjoy talking about it as much as we enjoy walking it and sharing it. If you are a stranger in the Dales, you won't stay that way for long. All 40 walking routes include: walking route summary, ratings for Effort Time Distance Ascents/Descents !
Refreshments and Vertigo risk, fully detailed walk description including frequent timings to aid navigation and check your progress, GPS waypoints at every key point on every route, full colour 1:40,000 scale Ordnance Survey licenced mapping for each route, short walk and stroll alternatives.  Includes a Place Name Index and has a Wire-O spiral binding allowing the book to lay flat and be folded back on itself without damage.

  Walker's Yorkshire Dales and South Pennines in a Box, Duncan Petersen - With 40 laminated cards to a box, this is a great twist to a walking guide.

Extending as far as the Peak District, the walks are in an ideal situation for all conurbations which run either side of the Pennines. The cards include local points of interest such as flora and fauna, birdlife and historic sites. Walks range from half a day to two days and are suitable for recreational walkers as well as those who enjoy a walking weekend.  Limited availability. Published June 10.
