Containing over 20 circular countryside walks, this book visits the magnificent scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. The walks themselves are between 2 and 5 miles long and are chosen for their appeal to families with children.
The walks are well-distributed across the Dales, mostly within the boundaries of the National Park. Locations stretch from Swaledale in the north to Bolton Abbey and Embsay (with its steam railway) in the south and from Dentdale in the west to Nidderdale and Middleham on the east.
Check-lists of things to spot on the walk are given, along with notes to parents about points of interest to discuss with the children on the way round. Other places to visit in the area and the location of toilet and refreshment facilities are given for each walk - simple yet vital information for the family with young children.
Ideal for both families with keen young walkers, and those reluctant to take exercise on the fells. Schools and playgroups.
