Product Description

From the Author

Amazon are to be congratulated for introducing the "look inside" feature for my book. The ability for potential customers to browse before buying is vital for a guide of this kind. Once people see the quality of the mapping, photos and layout and how much additional information is provided they can be confident they are getting their money's worth. Which is certainly true of Amazon's healthy discount. The book has already received two fantastic five star reviews. Thanks whoever you are.

Format: Paperback
Rob Haslam's Walking South Yorkshire: 30 Circular Walks Exploring the Ancient Woodland Around Sheffield, Rotherham and Barnsley is a gem of a book, and it has certainly been worth waiting for since his last walking book - The White Peak Way. The object of the book is to bring walking to those who normally do not do very much of it, and by making all of the walks accessible by public transport from Sheffield, Rotherham, and Barnsley, Rob has achieved something really worthwhile and commendable. I strongly recommend this book to all - regular walker or novice; there is something here for everyone.

Format: Paperback
I have just completed the 30 walks in this book and can thoroughly recommend it. The book is well researched and well illustrated. Every walk is accompanied by an OS 25,000 scale map with highlighted route, although I would recommend taking your own map as well, as sometimes the fine detail of the route is obscured by the green highlighting. I can honestly say that I found no errors, although the walk descriptions are rather concise, which probably reflects the constraints of editing. I never got lost, although I occasionally had to retrace my steps after a complicated junction and re-read the instructions. For instance "Turn left" is not the same as "Branch left".
There are numerous walking guides to the Peak District, often with a great deal of overlap in the walks. This book really fills a niche. It is packed with information, occasional touches of humour, and is an absolute must for walkers in South Yorkshire.

Format: Paperback
This is a beautifully produced book describing 30 varied walks from three to eight miles in a part of the country which is underestimated by many. It is superbly illustrated throughout, with concise but informative descriptions of the walks routes together with additional information relating to the various environments through which the walks pass. The use of 1:25,000 OS mapping is to be applauded. This book should act as a paradigm for all walks books.

Most bog standard walk books include a few facts about the walk, brief instructions, a sketchy map and a reference to an OS map. This book is in a class above. OS maps are included for every walk. The instructions are carefully written and you need to read EVERY WORD! There are plenty of walking books written about the Peak District but this book has taken me to many lovely places I would never have considered. Where I have had problems has been in identifying landmarks. The book was published in 2010 but some of the research was done before then. On walk 11 stage 3 the instruction reads "Fork left at a seat". There is a broken seat which I guessed (incorrectly) was not broken when the book was written. I got a little lost and ended up doing a stage the wrong way round. On walk 3 however, stage 3 the wooden barrier has now been upended and on walk 13 stage 4, I couldn't find the barrier mentioned at all. On walk 6 stage 3, I and my 10 year old son dutifully followed the advice to go through "a neglected but navigable path." I managed to coax my son 3/4 of the way along the nettle infested path. We were both wearing shorts and it was a good job our nettle bashing sticks had both broken before I spotted the active wasps nest slap in the middle of the path. We beat a hasty retreat!
Overall it is a great book and the odd navigation puzzle is part of the pleasure.

We bought this book to save us a long drive to the Peak District or North Yorkshire for a Sunday walk. As other readers have commented it does open up areas close to home that you might not be aware of. By using the map and the written instructions we haven't got seriously lost.
Some of the walks we've noted would be better in Summer as wet overgrown bracken isn't the best stuff to be fighting your way through.
There is one walk (Number 1 in the book Wincobank Hill) that starts walking through heavily littered scrubland. Perhaps Sheffield City county could get some young offenders cleaning this area up.
Walk number 19 was just 10 minutes drive from home but opened up completely new ground to me.
I recommend this book to anyone who lives in the area and wants to know it better.

This book is just great. I've explored so many areas that I wouldn't have dreamed of walking and nearly all of the walks have been just great. There is usually a wood, some moorland or pasture land to walk over/through. The instructions are generally clear although an additional mention of distance between points would be helpful. This book has formed the basis of our little walking groups outings for six months or so and we all think it's just brill. Will buy you a drink Rob if we meet!

This book is well researched and easy to follow. We have done quite a few of the walks now and found places we didn't know existed even after living in Sheffield for 25 years!
