On the Moor

On the Moor

On the Moor: science, history and nature on a country walk shows how a routine walk in the countryside is enhanced by an appreciation of science, history, and natural history.

To the uninitiated, the Moor above Hebden Bridge in the West Yorkshire Pennines might seem little more than acre upon acre of heather and the occasional red grouse. In fact, that’s a pretty good description of the place. But On the Moor shows how a familiar local patch is more interesting than it might seem, if you dig deeper into the science, history, and natural history of the things you encounter there.
