The West Yorkshire Woods: Part 1 is an original cartographic guide to the Calder Valley’s woodlands. The book covers the rich variety of landscapes that lie between Norwood Green and Walsden, including Cragg Vale, Shibden Dale, Hardcastle Crags, and the Ryburn, Luddenden and Blackburn Valleys. From ancient oak woodlands and Victorian beech plantations to the recent rewilding of former industrial sites, the book traces the history of these woods and gives advice for exploring them today. There are extensive notes and sketches on wildlife, fungi, etymology and local history.

Over twenty suggested routes are included, offering new ways through old country, each with a focus on the woods and other landscapes defined by trees.
