Her Master's Walks are a series of walking books covering the area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park. The first four books explore Swaledale, Wensleydale and Wharfedale. The fifth book Her Master's Walks in the Hambleton Hills began an introduction to the North York Moors. Her Master's Walks in Teesdale introduced to the beautiful and distinctive landscape of the North Pennines AONB, the second largest designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England. The last book Her Master's Walks in the Howardian Hills visits the beautiful rolling countryside of the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which provides excellent prospects for walkers. A diverse network of footpaths and bridleways offer a superb selection of routes ranging from riverside rambles to scenic hill walks. The series continues to be popular with walkers who require precise easy to follow maps with clear directions.
Many people who have purchased the books from the Her Master's Walks series have suggested the production a long distance guide for routes such as the Coast to Coast, Pennine Way and the Cleveland Way. Hence the new book and possibly the start of a new series. It seemed logical to produce a book on the Cleveland Way first, as much of the information had already been gathered for the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills guides.
There are nine individual stages in this guide, and all of them finish in or within easy reach of a village where accommodation or transport is available. Each section has been split into three or four strip maps with grid references and arrow pointers, which follow in the style of the Her Master's Walks series. The maps and directions have been checked by the Cleveland Way's National Trail Officer for accuracy.
The book is fully illustrated with colour photographs and full colour mapping. However, this publication does not have a Paw-word or any cartoons and therefore I must appologise to those who enjoy those items in the Her Master's Walks series.
