The Yorkshire Dales National Park was designated in 1954 and contains 680 square miles of Britain's finest scenery. Dramatic crags and scars, gleaming rivers and waterfalls, lovely fells and pastoral dales - all are captured in this exciting new guide.
Marrying the maplike qualities of vertical photography with spectacular aerial views, this glorious collection of stunning photographs explores the eight major dales of the National Park, plus the Three Peaks and the lesser known Howgills, in great detail. Step by step, their wildlife, villages, towns, industry, history, places of interest, footpaths, roads and scenery are described.
The walking opportunities are myriad: from the high moorland or ridgeway tracks of early hunters and traders - today either upgraded into moor edge roads or remaining as green lanes - such an essential feature of the Dales landscape.
These unique photographs give a bird's eye view of such favourite spots as the Three Peaks - Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent - Malham Cove and Tarn, the wonderful river walks of Wensleydale, Swaledale, Ribblesdale and Dentdale, or the bustling towns of Skipton, Gargrave and Hawes.
