    "Castle Walks in Yorkshire" is a first and foremost walking book, designed to provide hours of enjoyable walking through the stunning scenery and rich heritage of Britain's biggest and best-loved county. Yorkshire is full of diverse geographical interest and historical intrigue. Castles are once proliferated, from the Tees in the north to the Don in the south, from the Wharfe in the west to the Humber in the east. Today, the remains of many of these once mighty structures are still visible, although the nature of those ruins varies enormously. Whatever their current state, all are fascinating and exciting places that evoke images of knights in armour and battles between king and country. Castles and other historic sites are linked with interesting and pleasant countryside, creating circular walks which begin - and end - at a pub in a small village. Clear instructions, together with information on each castle, make this excellent book a joy to use and perfect for walkers of all ages and abilities who also enjoy learning about the past.
