This book illustrates the areas included with our new style of front cover, hopefully that will be clearly recognisable as the series develops (Volume 1 with its photos will become a collectors book). The Lake District has been excluded, simply because it deserves a volume of its own - and works well in combination with the Scottish Southern Uplands to make Volume 6.

The Pennines are included in their entirety, from the Peak District up to the natural valley cutting across from Carlisle to Newcastle. The quiet and desolate Northern Pennines offers the highest peak along the backbone of England - Cross Fell. The Howgill Fells fall to the E of the M6 motorway and provide for a far quieter alternative to the Lake District, plus are lower and usually benefit from escaping hill fog (low cloud).

The Yorkshire Dales are covered extensively, with many new walks taking advantage of open access ground. These new trails run along the edges of the escarpments and are often well drained, rather than the summit brows that tend to be convex and poorly drained. Two pretty demanding days are included for the Forest of Bowland - again another area that has opened up with the Open Access Ground agreement. The Central Pennines are covered in detail - with some surprisinly wild and challenging routes. All of the major tops in the Peak District are included, with some challenging days out that will surprise many - not for the faint hearted.

This book also includes the Hills to the East of the Pennines, fully covering the North Yorkshire Moors, and offering a spledid walk in both the Yorkshire Wolds and Linclonshire wolds respectively. This volume is very comprehensive, and offers a mammoth challenge for most.


This is the finest challenging walk in the book, and is a TIRING day out. It passes over 3 separate summits of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough; contains 4754 ft of ascent (1449 metres), and is 23.2 miles long (37.2km). The route is a spectacular day out and gets a non stop walking time of 7.58 hours. Expect to take 10 hours with rests.

Hill Running: Mens running time is a minimum of 3.59, and women 4.23.

Northern England - is 288 pages: 210mm high x 116mm wide x 12mm thick (8¼" x 4¾" approx, ½" thick). It is fully sewn bound with a card cover that had fold away flaps for page markers.

NOTE: The binding of our walking-running books is stiched with modern nylon thread. This cord will stretch when you open the book fully, and allows you to bend the book completely back on itself (do not try this with other manufacturers books that may be cotton thread bound). This offers a massive advantage, since all of the double spread spreads will open out flat and stay flat in a map case.
