The Yorkshire Dales is one of Britain's finest landscapes.
The small fields enclosed by dry stone walls; the limestone pavements; the Yorkshire Three Peaks; the tumbling cascades and waterfalls; the high hillside cliffs; and the areas of wild moorland have made the compelling and unique landscape of the Yorkshire Dales popular with walkers and tourists for generations.
This book is intended for the walker who has an appreciation of the natural landscape and an interest in how it has developed over time.
It is divided into two parts: the first part provides simplified information on the geological history of the Yorkshire Dales.
It then presents 14 recommended walks, of varying lengths, where the effects of the underlying geology can be easily seen and where the subsequent processes of erosion can be understood in finer detail.
The walks are also in areas where the natural beauty of the Dales can be seen to its full extent and its shaping can be better appreciated.
