9781852842512: Walks in the Forest of Bowland: 30 short walks in an area of outstanding natural beauty

A Jack Keighley guide to walks in the Forest of Bowland, Lancashire, northern England, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 30 routes throughout the Forest including the gentle foothills in the south and north, on top of the moors and in the valleys. The Forest of Bowland, a wild and sparsely populated region of some 312 square miles, is undoubtedly the finest upland landscape that Lancashire has to offer. It is a great dome of bare, windswept moors gashed by deep, desolate cloughs and verdant river valleys, sprinkled here and there with picturesque villages, tiny secluded hamlets and lonely farmsteads. When you have completed all the walks in this book you will have tramped over sombre moors, sauntered through silent forests and shady woodland glades, meandered along sun-kissed riverbanks, ambled across flowery meadows and breezy upland pastures, strolled down leafy lanes, stumbled through glutinous quagmires and slimy peat hags and gazed in admiration from breathtaking viewpoints. You will have seen this Arcadian countryside in all its facets and possibly - if you've walked through four seasons - in all its moods. Inevitably you will have fallen in love with ?Bolland'. It's that sort of place. All the walks described in this book are circular, accessible by car, fairly uniform in length at an average of 6 1/2 miles and make good half-day excursions.
