5.0 out of 5 stars Dales and dales of walking, 11 Aug. 2010
This review is from: The Yorkshire Dales - North and East: Swaledale, Wensleydale, Nidderdale (Cicerone Walking Guides) (Paperback)
The Cicerone Walking Guides are a well known source of information for providing walk routes and details of the areas they cover. This edition for the North and the East of the Yorkshire Dales is no exception to the rule and is well written by Dennis and Jan Kesall based on their own local knowledge of the area. The guide in it's introduction covers the Dales landscape and its plant and wildlife and the influences on the land by human activitiy, history, and local geology and makes a good read on it's own. For the less than well prepared walker there is a useful section devoted to all the praticalities of a day's walk, so that all the routes covered can enjoyed with careful planning.
The walks contained are then placed into 5 areas; for example Part 1 covers the Howgill Fells, while Part 2 covers Mallerstang. Each of these parts then provide a number of walks that allow you experience the character of each of the fells or dales listed. The route descriptions are clear with any difficult sections noted, as are the reprinted extracts of OS maps; there are also some lovely photographs throughout taken by the authors, which add to both the quality and value of this guide.
Having now personally used some of the routes provided, during a recent weekend spent in Hawes, North Yorkshire, I encountered no difficulties in navigation or enjoyment and I cannot wait to explore the area again using this book as my companion.
A great little volume to carry in your rucksack and well worth the modest asking price.
