People who like to go walking in the Yorkshire Dales may be keen on a new guidebook from which some of the proceeds of sales will go towards a footpath preservation project.

Dales Rail Trails offers details on walks people can take from the various stations on the Settle to Carlisle railway, which runs through the national park.

A portion of the funds from each sale will go to Friends of the Three Peaks, a body run by the national park authority that looks after footpaths and the wider environment around the famous mountain trip of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent.

Chris Grogan from Saltaire-based publishers Skyware Ltd noted that as the company is one of the corporate partners of the Friends, it is "more than willing to allocate some of the proceeds to the vital work on the path network and we hope that it will benefit walkers for a long time to come".

The Settle to Carlisle railway is not the only public transport option that walkers may use in the national park.

Car Free Walks recently published details of walks that can be undertaken around Swaledale by people using the Dalesman bus service.
