Backbone of England

Photographer Helen Shaw takes you on a  fascinating journey celebrating the Pennines, that magnificent range of hills and moors which make up the backbone of England.
The book covers the length of the Pennines, from south to north. It will enhance anyone’s pleasure in this sometimes over-looked area by recommending the best viewpoints, walks or longer hikes, beautiful villages, bleak and dramatic hill-tops, caves, astonishing features, tourist attractions and lonely crags, breathtaking waterfalls and countless rivers which run to the west and east of the Pennines watershed.

This book will make anyone who lives in or near the Pennines proud of this English range which has so affected the landscape and lives of its residents. And it will entice many tourists to explore this area further.
