Nidderdale Way

Nidderdale Way Walking GuidebookThere has not been a guide to the Nidderdale Way in print for a while now, so its three cheers to Rucksack Readers who have just published an excellent new guidebook which ticks all the boxes of what a good walking guidebook should contain.

Nidderdale is perhaps the least known of the Yorkshire Dales valleys. This unique dale has three large reservoirs formed by damming the River Nidd. It boasts impressive natural features such as Brimham Rocks, Guise Cliff and How Stean Gorge. Walking the circular Nidderdale Way is a very enjoyable 4 to 6 day long distance walk.
