Publisher's Information  

The Pennine Bridleway, when complete, will run for about 350 miles (560km), and will be Britain's first purpose-built, long-distance bridleway. This book covers the southernmost section of the Bridleway, the first to be opened, starting near Buxton, in the heart of the Peak District National Park, and running north to the moors of the southern Pennines to the east of Hebden Bridge, where it splits into two to form the 47-mile (75km) Mary Towneley Loop, which has already established itself as a popular trail for horse-riders and mountain bikers. Although it has been designed and built specifically to serve the needs of horse-riders and cyclists, it is expected that the route will also be widely used by many walkers, as it offers a spectacular trail through some of the finest countryside in the north-west of England while being easily accessible from the region's populous towns and cities, such as Sheffield, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Huddersfield and Leeds. This book, published in association with the Countryside Agency, is the complete guide to this section of the Bridleway. It contains: a detailed description of the entire route, split into convenient sections; 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps for each section marked with points of special interest; colour photographs and features on local history, landscape, wildlife, geology and land use; details of facilities for horse-riders and cyclists; and information on travel, accommodation and facilities such as Tourist Information Centres and Youth Hostels, and contact details for other useful organizations.
