Alfred Wainwright, author of the inimitable best-selling Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells, here describes thirty-four selected walks in the interesting limestone area around the Three Peaks in the Yorkshire Dales. Each has its particular charm or special objective. Each is the subject of a separate chapter containing a diagram, a map, and an illustrated narrative.
Also included is a detailed description of the route of the marathon Three Peaks Walk.
Walks in Limestone Country was first published in 1970. For this new edition, every footpath has been re-walked, and every map and diagram checked by Chris Jesty, who assisted with the maps on Wainwright’s last two large-format books. It is now fully up to date for 21st century walkers.
