Northern England

Northern England has been strongly influenced by the presence and movements of the Pleistocene ice sheets thousands of years ago, and a diverse and fascinating landscape has been created. The following regions contain most of the walking routes and photos on this website.

But great walking routes are not necessarily restricted to National Parks and AONBs (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty). This section of the site contains any remaining routes in Northern England which start from, or are mainly or fully, outside the above regions.
