The West Yorkshire Moors is an original cartographic guide to the moorlands of West Yorkshire.
The book traces old and new paths, unearths lost names and discovers hidden features on even the most apparently empty corner of these moors.
There are extensive notes and sketches of the area’s history, wildlife, folklore and etymology.
Twenty-nine suggested routes are included, most of which are accessible by public transport.
These moors stretch from Ilkley, Keighley and Bingley in the north to Holmfirth, Marsden and Meltham in the south.
This new edition of the book features amended and digitally remastered maps, and several new sketches.
All the routes have been updated, with two brand new ones added.
