Product description

A record of some of the many stunning ancient highways within 30 miles of Haworth-Hebden Bridge area. From the South Pennines to the Southern Dales. For horse riders, cyclists and walkers. This book is no ordinary route guide, It shows how the efforts of the registered charity - The South Pennine Packhorse Trails Trust - have resulted in many miles of historic moorland tracks being reinstated and improved for use by horse riders, mountain bikers and ramblers. A huge amount of time, money and effort invested by the few for the sake of the many! The fascinating first section tells the tale of many of the old roads throughout the region and how they came to be neglected and then reinstated and improved using legal and physical means by the SPPTT and network of enthusiastic volunteers. The second section gives an outline of many of the routes ridden by Mary and Christine, and includes information useful for those using four hooves, two wheels or two feet to explore the wild and beautiful country of the South Pennines. The guide assumes you know how to use an Ordnance Survey map, with map references and sketch maps leading you to the right area to begin exploring. The final section of poetry shows the inspirational nature of these ancient highways. This 2002 spiral bound, 70 page paperback book is in very good condition and appears unread. There is some very minor dogging to the top corner of the cover and some of the pages and to the cover at the top of the spiral from how it has been stored. The book contains black and white photographs and maps throughout.
