This guidebook provides clear, easy to follow route directions for the 60 and a half mile-long Richmond Way, passing through a unique area of Northern England. This is a linear walk starting from the main gate of Lancaster Castle and ending below the great keep of Richmond Castle in North Yorkshire. The walk encompasses sections of the Lower Lune Valley, the limestone country around Ingleborough and Whernside, the moorlands and fells of the central Pennines and the central and northern valleys of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Richmond Way does not exist in a formal sense; it does not have the status of an officially recognised trail and the walker will not find any reference to it on any waymarkers or signposts. Nevertheless, the route, devised and tested by the author over a number of years is along public rights of way that in the main are well waymarked. The route is almost entirely along field, woodland and riverside paths, ancient tracks and quiet country lanes. A strong walker could complete the walk within two days, though more realistically an average walker even if accompanied by children should be able to complete the walk inside five days. The book includes 58 maps and 167 colour photographs, information on local public transport, accommodation and facilities, and features historical, archaeological and geographical information along the route.
