The West Yorkshire Woods: Part II is an original cartographic guide to the Aire Valley’s woodlands from Castleford to Silsden. It covers large parts of Leeds, Bradford, Shipley, Bingley and Keighley. Within and between these urban areas is a surprising abundance of wooded landscapes, from grand parks and plantations to swathes of ancient coppiced woodland. This book maps them out and provides a wealth of information on their rich history, as well as the flora, fauna and fungi that can be found here.
Over twenty suggested walks are included, all accessible by public transport. Intricate maps detail interesting new routes through these woodland landscapes, often straying from the beaten path.
