Few areas in England are so completely and immediately appealing as the Yorkshire Dales. Each valley has a character all its own, and this intimate and varied landscape harmonises, as nowhere else in the country, the work of nature and the hand of man. With a total of 42 walks, this book seeks out the best of the northern and eastern sections of this magnificent walking region. Spectacular waterfalls, dramatic gorges, expansive heather moors, rich woodlands and colourful flower meadows are just some of the natural delights encountered along the way, while elsewhere intriguing relics of lead mining and quarrying scatter remote valleys and lonely hilltops. Together with Volume One, covering the southern and western dales, the books form a comprehensive walking guide to the whole of the Dales. Routes range from gentle three-mile strolls to more strenuous day-long rambles and inspire the exploration of one of Britain's most scenic regions.

They also contribute to various magazines, as well as producing a weekly walking feature for the Lancashire Evening Post.Their enjoyment of the countryside extends far beyond a love of fresh air and open spaces and an appreciation of scenery. They also have a keen interest in the environment and its geology, flora and wildlife, as well as a passion for the local history that so often provides clues to interpreting the landscape.
