Walking in the North Pennines
| ||bestel |
Cicerone Walking in the North Pennines - The North Pennines have often been described as 'England's Last Wilderness' and are among the wildest, bleakest and most remote moorlands in the country. Shared by the counties of Cumbria, Durham and Northumberland, they make up the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England. As well as being famous for its range of arctic and alpine remnant flora, the region’s mineral wealth has given it a rich industrial heritage for walkers to explore.
This new guidebook offers readers both gentle riverside strolls, passing waterfalls and flower-filled meadows, and longer, rugged moorland walks, and includes vast areas now designated as 'access land'.
