'John Burnley's guide to Nidderdale is far more than a collection of walks - it's also an enthralling introduction to the little-known delights of this increasingly popular area. In the first half of his book, John presents a selection of essays that brings to life the landscape, history and characters of Nidderdale. The coverage is impressive, tracing development of the area from prehistoric times to the present day, from pagan rituals through monastic times to wealthy industrial dynasties.
The second half contains 18 circular walks from four to nine miles through the dramatically beautiful landscape of Nidderdale. Concise, detailed route guides include accurate maps, together with at-a-glance details of local amenities and places of interest.'
