Sheffield Greenway, Robert Haslam - The Sheffield Greenway is a unique recreational walking route of 111 miles (179 km). 90% is off-road, most on natural or improved paths through countryside and yet it never strays more than 7 miles (11 km) from Sheffield city centre. To achieve this remarkable feat, the Greenway meanders through the leafy suburbs in five roughly equidistant loops - south, west, north, east, and into the neighbouring countryside of Rotherham - seeking out the best the leafiest and greenest city in the UK has to offer. 61% of Sheffield is green space; it has many large and beautiful parks, acres of ancient woodland, five scenic river valleys, a canal and numerous wild open spaces. It is also a journey of discovery, packed with visible history and stunning views. Published February 15.

Julia Bradbury's Wainwright Walks: Coast to Coast, Julia Bradbury - The much-loved fellwalker Alfred Wainwright created one of the truly great walking challenges – to walk across the whole of England. The Coast to Coast route was AW’s last great venture and has become his greatest legacy to long distance walkers – a beautifully simple proposition, linking three national parks that lie between the Irish and the North Sea - The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The North Yorks Moors National Parks.
Accompanying the BBC television series, this book follows Julia Bradbury as she re-traces Wainwright’s grand traverse. The book collects together all six stages of the walk from the TV series, with Julia’s commentary on her experience of the walk accompanied by stills, evocative landscape photography, and AW’s celebrated line drawings. Julia crosses this changing landscape in sun, wind and rain, learns something of its history and meets the people that make up almost 200 miles of northern England’s most glorious countryside. Published April 13.

Moods of the Bronte Moors, Exploring the Moors and Mills of the South Pennines, John Morrison - Perhaps best known as Bronte Country and the home of the talented Victorian novelists, the South Pennines also have as good a claim to be the 'cradle of industry' as anywhere in Britain. The fascination of the area is to see the hand of Man at every turn: the relics of industry, from the genuine cottage industries of spinning and weaving to the mechanisation of the textile mills. But then you climb away from the mill towns, up to the heather moors. Here you can walk old 'causeways' in the footsteps of Packman and Pedlar, and where you are alone with the curlews and the cotton-grass. It's the combination of upland country, well-wooded valleys and characterful mill towns that makes the South Pennines such a fascinating area to explore and photograph, and John Morrison's stunning new book explores every aspect of this vastly under-rated landscape. Published May 04
The Teesdale Way, Martin Collins and Paddy Dillon - This is a new, fully updated, full-colour edition of this guide.

This is a delightful walk through unmatched river scenery including historic sites, SSSIs, pretty villages, woods, rolling farmland and wetlands. Passing as it does from remote Pennine moorland, through traditional Dales towns and finally to Teeside's industrial heartland, the Teesdale Way gives us a fascinating cross-section of the region's social, cultural and economic life. The Way is divided into eight stages of moderate walking and takes about a fortnight to complete, including exploration on all the interesting features, or much less for the more determined walker. The author has included plenty of information on terrain, wildlife and history, accommodation, transport and refreshment, together with a final chapter outlining 10 circular walks around various parts of the Tees for smaller excursions.

Now largely wooded, paths beside the fast-flowing river provide access to see the varied wildlife and historical remains of the valley. This book combines a trail guide with a wealth of information about the lower Rivelin valley. It is richly-illustrated with old photographs and maps showing what the valley was like in the past.

In the style of Walking with Beatrix Potter and Walking with Wordsworth, Walking with the Brontës is a pocket-sized book containing fifteen walking routes, predominantly in West Yorkshire. Each walk is to somewhere associated with one or more of the Brontë family, either in real life or with important characters or places in their novels: for instance the house on which Emily based Thrushcross Grange in Wuthering Heights, or the countryside around Cowan Bridge School which, with its harsh regime, caused the Brontë girls much suffering and became Lowood School in Charlotte's Jane Eyre. The walks are generally short and fairly easy, contrasting semi-urban areas with the wild moorland above their home at the Parsonage Haworth. Each route is fully described, aided by sketch plans, and illustrated by new colour photographs. In each case, a separate text explains the Bronte associations, with extracts from their writing.
