This new title is the latest in the new series of Paul Hannon’s walking guides covering Yorkshire. A range of enhancements see a more logical geographical spread, in this case featuring the entire eastern half of West Yorkshire. With Calderdale, the South Pennines, Bronte country and Ilkley covered in companion volumes, this book features locations that are but a stone’s throw from the larger centres of population.

The fringes of the great northern city of Leeds, along with Wakefield and the country towards Bradford and Huddersfield offer untold attractions within the boundaries of West Yorkshire. The walks include such iconic locations as Temple Newsam, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Fairburn Ings, Roundhay Park and Emley Moor. There are 25 enjoyable outings amid a rich variety of scenery.

A collection of 50 colour photographs depict features and landscapes along the routes, while the concise route descriptions are complemented by a wealth of background information.
