AT LAST – a new long distance walking trail!

Created over a long and footsore year in 2011, this walk was lovingly crafted
by experienced mountain and fell-walker and general outdoor enthusiast,
Paul Brown.

The starting point in Leeds City Centre could not be more convenient, situated
as it is, right outside the railway station and a short walk from the bus station.

Leeds is served by local and national connections and has reasonably priced
hotels in the immediate vicinity of the start line for those walkers who have
travelled a little further and wish to partake in the wonderfully varied shopping or nightlife that Leeds has to offer, before commencing the walk the next day.

Unlike some other trails, there is no set distance to walk in a day.
Most walkers would take in the region of a week to complete the trail.
However, walk a little or a lot.
Walk it in three days or in ten.
Walk it in day sections or in a series of weekends.
There are pretty good transport links from most of the places through which
the walk passes. The choice is yours.

The on-line accommodation guide provides contact details of many guest
houses and hotels either on or close to the route and has one-click internet links
to their websites.

The finish line, some 104 miles later, is at the beautiful South Bay, in Britain’s first
seaside resort of Scarborough.

You would have to go far and wide to find a walk as varied as this one.

The book also contains many items of local and natural history, detailing points of
interest as the walk passes them, to keep you entertained.

I hope you derive as much pleasure from walking the route as I did in creating
and writing it.
