Tops of the North II SIGNED From Millrace Books
This is the second and final part of Tops of the North, Graham Wilson’s account of his 1,100-km walk linking County Tops (old and new) of northern England. In Volume I he explored the western reaches, from Three Shire Head to Carlisle; now, in Volume II, he finishes his circuit. From Carlisle to The Cheviot and the Northumberland coast, the Durham moors to the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District, this entertainingly roundabout route finally returns to the moorland near Buxton where it began.The diverse tour takes in Hadrian’s Wall and Northumbrian castles, saintly Ways and long distance footpaths. In passing, Wilson discusses knitting miners and the Geordie language, Ted Hughes and the Venerable Bede, bogs, plagues and George I—and much more.
'If you like sifting through a landscape’s history and enjoy an individual sense of humour, this book should be on your hit list. This volume can be appreciated alone, but for completeness I’d couple it with volume 1, which follows a similarly insightful and entertaining style.' Ian Battersby, TGO, May 2010
'This book from the splendid Millrace stable sees Graham Wilson complete his 1100km quest to conquer the county summits of northern England. … He fills his journey with fascinating facts and figures.' Country Walking, Feb 2010
