This is Book 20 in the series of full-colour 'Pocket Walks', being small, practical sized guidebooks aimed at the less serious rambler. Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area. Principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length (though averaging four miles each, they are all very definitely worthwhile outings), making them ideal for families, leisure walkers, and others constrained by either time or other limitations. Concise route descriptions are complemented by background information.
This title deals with the area around the Bronte shrine of Haworth and the Worth Valley in the absorbing countryside of the South Pennines. Twenty super walks use starting points such as Oxenhope and Stanbury, and of course Haworth itself. Places visited include Top Withins, Harden Moor, Ponden and Goit Stock.
Haworth and Bronte Country is published simultaneously with Book 21 covering neighbouring area Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley, and also slots neatly alongside previously published titles Aire Valley and Around Pendle.
