North York Moors National Park South and West Walking Guidebook

North York Moors National Park South and West Walking Guidebook

by: Paul Hannon
The North York Moors National Park is a walker's paradise, and the southern and western half includes the majestic Cleveland Hills and Hambleton Hills, as well as a string of colourful valleys.

This guidebook describes 25 great walks, well-illustrated and concisely described, which lead through stunning landscapes of heather-clad moorland with wayside crosses, and rich woodland by delectable riverbanks. From the absorbing old market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley discover the grandeur of Rievaulx and Byland Abbeys, and follow in the footsteps of drovers, miners and quarrymen.

Savour the natural delights of the Wainstones, Boltby Scar andGormire Lake, and the ever popular charms of Osmotherley, Hutton-le-Hole, Sutton Bank and the White Horse of Kilburn. Explore the delightful valleys of Ryedale, Bilsdale, Bransdale, Farndale and Rosedale and a wealth of colourful stone built villages such as Hawnby, Lastingham, Gillamoor and Swainby.

Each walk entry begins with start location, distance, OS Explorer map reference and access information.
