An exhilarating and challenging 90 miles across the glorious high country of the Yorkshire Dales. Walk this spectacular landscape from Saltaire to Appleby-in-Westmorland. Explore its rich history, geology and culture. Return with a breathtaking train ride along England's most beautiful railway. This is the original guide to the new long distance walk covering 90 miles from Saltaire, near Shipley, West Yorkshire, to Appleby-in-Westmorland in Cumbria.The book is specially designed for use as the primary route guide for the walk, being robust, pocket-sized and with detailed route maps carrying instructions ON the maps themselves. It comes with a weather resistant plastic wallet. From Saltaire the route crosses the darkly mysterious Rombalds Moor, with its Stone Age rock art, and follows the dramatic limestone scars of Malhamdale. It meanders along the bank of the River Ribble and climbs the might Ingleborough. It skirts the flanks of Whernside and in a breathtaking six-mile ridge walk crosses the velvety folds of the Howgill Fells. It passes the isolated splendour of Sunbiggin Tarn before dropping into the lush green of the Eden valley to finish in Appleby. The guide book offers alternative low-level routes for the highest sections. There is a supporting website which gives a detailed accomodation guide to the route, regular news features along the way and a discussion forum for walkers.
