A fully waymarked trail from Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere, the Dales Way links two of England's most celebrated national parks, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Well served for accommodation and facilities, and with easy walking on riverside paths, it is one of the gentlest multi-day walks in Britain and therefore an ideal introduction to long-distance walking. It can be comfortably completed in 6-8 days. Novices and experienced long-distance walkers alike will find plenty of interest on this wonderful walk, including glorious limestone scenery and characterful historic towns. Presented in six daily stages of 7-19 miles (with suggestions for alternative schedules), this guide describes the Way in both directions, with the main route description running from south to north. Step-by-step route description is accompanied by 1:100,000 mapping, and a trek planner, showing where facilities are available, is included to facilitate planning. Accommodation listings and useful contacts can be found in the appendices. A separate, conveniently sized map booklet located in the back-cover sleeve provides all the OS 1:25,000 mapping needed to complete the trail. Accompanying rivers great and small, crossing farmland - and just a little moorland, following wandering winding lanes, the Dales Way visits a wide variety of fascinating features - from churches to viaducts, from traditional villages to ancient stone circles. The guide offers comprehensive notes on local points of interest, as well as an overview of Dales geology, history, plants and wildlife to enhance the walking experience. The practical information is all there too, including when to go, how to get there and what to take, making for an ideal companion to enjoying this delightful route.

The "Dales Way" passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in England. The footpath is 84 miles in length and runs from Ilkley to Bowness-on-Windermere. Starting on the banks of the River Wharfe it follows the river upstream, climbs over the top of the watershed of the Pennines, and then winds steadily down the other side passing through the delightful undulating countryside of where we once used to call Westmorland, before finally arriving at the shore of England's largest expanse of inland water. Along the way I will be exploring the places that I visit and delving into the histories of the people who have made their contributions to life in the area throughout the ages. Join me on my journey and discover our rich heritage.

A guide to walks in northern dales of the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park, England, UK, between Edale, Matlock and Buxton. In 1951 the Peak District - 555 square miles of breathing space between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield - became the UK's first National Park and rightly so. This much-loved landscape has cultural integrity, geographical variety, treasured wildlife habitats and lots of recreational opportunities. Its rockier southern half, the White Peak, takes its name from the underlying limestone and is a charming mosaic of idyllic villages, pastures, woods and valleys. The 35 walks cross the gritstone uplands and moors and explore the Wye and its tributary dales. The book offers a wide selection of easy circular routes of up to 8 miles, illustrated with OS map extracts and forms one of the first two books in Cicerone's three-volume series on the Peak District.
