North York Moors - Freedom to Roam

North York Moors - Freedom to Roam

by: Judy Armstrong
This superbly illustrated guide contains directions and Ordnance Survey Explorer mapping for twelve hill walks through the wild heart of the North York Moors. Exploring new trails over vast heather moorland, the routes also take in ancient crosses, burial mounds and stone-flagged tracks, sacred wells, working steam trains, a haunted inn and the superb Heritage Coast.
This guide is number nine of the 'Freedom to Roam' series published in partnership with the Ramblers' Association. These guides celebrate the arrival of our new legal rights to walk at will on mountain top, moorland and heath in England and Wales. By definition, these guides are less prescriptive than is usual and are designed to help you discover areas of the countryside which you haven't legally walked on before, advising you on routes you might want to take and telling you about places of interest along the way. In areas where it can be tricky to find routes or track down landmarks more detailed instructions are offered. Elsewhere directions are deliberately less precise, allowing you to choose your own path or line to follow. For each walk, however, there is a recommended core route. It follows that these guides assume competence with map and compass and some experience of hill walking.
The walk locations are: Little Blakey; Spaunton estate; Bransdale Moor; Arden Great Moor; Cleveland Hills; Bilsdale; Wainstones and Round Hill; Commondale; Danby Rigg; Goathland and the Roman Road; Heritage Coast - Stony Marl Moor; Hole of Horcum.
