Part of a series of full-colour 'Pocket Walks', being small, practical sized guidebooks aimed at the less serious rambler. Full colour photographs and colourful sketch maps accompany each of the well described walks, with the bonus of making it an attractive souvenir of the area. Principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length (though averaging 4 miles each, they are all very definitely worthwhile outings), making them ideal for families, leisure walkers, and others constrained by either time or other limitations. Concise route descriptions are complemented by ample background information. This title deals with Upper Wharfedale, the most popular valley in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Twenty superb walks use starting points such as Buckden, Grassington, Arncliffe and Kettlewell. Places visited include Buckden Pike, Hubberholme, Grass Wood and Linton. Launched in in unison with 3 other neighbouring Yorkshire Dales titles, covering Malhamdale, Nidderdale and Lower Wharfedale.
Since its foundation in 1860, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History's world-renowned collections have become a key centre for scientific study and its much-loved building an important icon for visitors from around the world. The museum now holds over seven million scientific specimens including five million insects, half a million fossil specimens and half a million zoological specimens. It also holds an extensive collection of archival material relating to important naturalists such as Charles Darwin, William Smith, William Jones and James Charles Dale. This lavishly illustrated book features highlights from the collections ranging from the iconic Dodo (the only soft tissue specimen of the species in existence) and the giant tuna (brought back from Madeira on a perilous sea crossing in 1846) to crabs collected by Darwin during his voyage on the Beagle, David Livingstone's tsetse fly specimens and Mary Anning's ichthyosaur. Also featured are the first described dinosaur bones, found in a small Oxfordshire village, the Red Lady of Paviland (who was in fact a man who lived 29,000 years ago) and a meteorite from the planet Mars. Each item tells a unique story about natural history, about the history of science, about collecting, or about the museum itself. They give a unique insight into the extraordinary wealth of information and the fascinating tales that can be gleaned from these collections, both from the past and for the future.

Baddesley Clinton was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. This long history can be read in its walls. The model of a medieval moated manor house, Baddesley Clinton has much to tell us about England's historical architecture, although interpreting all that history can be a challenge. This guidebook is intended as a companion to your visit and also to help you read the trickier-to-read sections of the building's history. Indeed, Baddesley Clinton is full of intriguing corners and secret hiding places. Constant in their adherence to the Roman Catholic faith, the Ferrers family made their home a sanctuary not only for them, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters here during the 1590s. The stories of the house inspired the residents who came later, including Henry Ferrers, a lawyer, diarist and antiquarian. Proud of his family's history, he filled the house with coats of arms in stained glass, carved oak and stone. Later still, a group of artists came to Baddesley Clinton and found it a source of great inspiration; after them a couple who devoted their energies to restoring what you see today, before giving it to the National Trust for safekeeping. This house has inspired people in many ways, and with the devotion to its care now the task of the Trust, it's hoped it will inspire many more.
