Walking in Weardale PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Walking in Weardale free pdf Weardale, the valley of the Prince Bishops. Following the success of his previous two books, 'Walks from Stanhope' and 'Walking in Weardale', the author continues his exploration of this beautiful but rugged little dale. One of the former 'lead dales' of the North Pennines and also one of the birth places of the North East's iron and steel industry, this is an area that is rich in industrial history. With these industries now gone, Weardale is rapidly gaining a reputation for its natural beauty and becoming a magnet for discerning walkers. Join the author in another series of nine walks as he explores the countryside of this dale, from the lower grazing pastures surrounding Wolsingham up to the high, windswept moors of the Pennine watershed and discover what makes this valley so special.

About Keven Shevels

Keven Shevels.Kev has been involved with outdoor sports for over forty years since his school days doing the Duke of Edinburgh award, spending his time either walking, running and latterly mountain biking through the countryside of the North East and beyond. He is not ashamed to admit that he is one of these boring people who can sit and spend hours reading a map the way that other people read a book. His great delight is coming up with new routes that he can subsequently explore and investigate especially if he can couple this with his interest in history, in particular the prehistoric. This usually means much more than a walk as his routes tend to take a view not only on the landscape but also its relationship with events and occurrences that have happened in the past. In many ways this curiosity and knowledge of the Durham Dales can make him a perfect guide to this under-valued part of our region. Now in his sixties, Kev has been unable to continue his running due to injury problems but instead has been co-author of one of the most innovative series of coaching books for fell and trail runners in recent years. He now brings his easy to read, informative style of writing to guide books for those who walk in the countryside of County Durham, his home county.
