Walking in the North Pennines: A Walker's Guide by Paddy Dillon

A guidebook to day walking in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), across Cumbria, County Durham and Northumberland in the heart of northern England. The book includes 50 walks, from 8km to 23km, suitable for all abilities over a variety of terrain, all illustrated with OS mapping and colour photographs; and full details of local transport services, accommodation and tourist information centres in the area. Most are circular, so that anyone using a car can return to it at the end of the walk, but a few are linear and require the use of public transport for completion. It is easy for everyone to enjoy exploring the North Pennines, as the walking routes suit all abilities, from old, flat railway trackbeds to extensive, pathless, tussocky moorland.
