Overview

A guidebook to day walking in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), across Cumbria, County Durham and Northumberland in the heart of northern England. The North Pennines have often been described as 'England's Last Wilderness' and are among the wildest, bleakest and most remote moorlands in the country. They make up the largest AONB in England. As well as being famous for its range of arctic and alpine remnant flora, the region's mineral wealth has given it a rich industrial heritage for walkers to explore. This new guidebook offers readers both gentle riverside strolls, passing waterfalls and flower-filled meadows, and longer, rugged moorland walks, and includes vast areas now designated as 'access land'. The book includes: 50 circular walks, from 8km to 23km, suitable for all abilities over a variety of terrain, all illustrated with OS mapping and colour photographs; and full details of local transport services, accommodation and tourist information centres in the area.
