This is Book 18 in the exciting new series of full-colour Pocket Walks , being small, practical sized guidebooks aimed at the less serious rambler. Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area. Principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length (though averaging 4 miles each, they are all very definitely worthwhile outings), making them ideal for families, leisure walkers, and those constrained by either time or other limitations. Concise route descriptions are complemented by ample background information. This title deals with Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Twenty superb walks use starting points such as Keld, Muker, Gunnerside, Reeth and Richmond. Places visited include Grinton, Calver Hill, Arkengarthdale, Marske, Tan Hill and Kisdon Force. This is launched in unison with Sedbergh Dentdale, which completes our coverage of the entire Yorkshire Dales. Also published at the same time are Ribble Valley and Around Pendle, both in Lancashire.
