Subtitled 'A hand-drawn guide to walking and exploring all of the country of West Yorkshire's open access moorland', this walking guide, produced by Sheffield-born map maker Christopher Goddard, is a thing of real wonder. We say that because this cartographic marvel is not only full of lovely hand-drawn walking maps that take us on 29 suggested routes that trace old and new paths across the West Yorkshire Moors, it is also absolutely stuffed full of annotated and fascinating details. This brand new 2nd edition includes new routes, updates, sketches and other improvements.
Each page opens up an area via its history, markers, architecture, flora, fauna, and everything in between. This isn't a walking guide, it's an education to be taken in alfresco while wandering happily in familiar, yet unknown places.
Intricate, thorough, engrossing - these are fantastic pieces of work that will keep you occupied and exploring. They might even wean us off Google Maps too.
