Backbone of England

Hebden Bridge author and journalist Andrew Bibby walks the Pennines along the route of the watershed that
separates the water flowing westwards to the Irish Sea and the Atlantic from the water heading towards the North Sea,
and gains insights into the history, ecology, geology and culture of the area. John Morrison, who lived in Hebden Bridge until recently, specializes in photographs of the north of England. Price £20.00.

Chris Smith, former Culture Secretary, has said of this book:
“Forty years ago I walked the Pennine Way from the Dark Peak to the Cheviots, and found solace and inspiration in the fragile peat-covered landscape of these wide sweeping moorlands.  In this wonderful book Andrew Bibby does something more.  He not only helps us to savour the Pennine landscape; he helps us to understand it, and he urges us to cherish it.  He shows us how this land was formed, what has happened and is happening to it, and – in a thoroughly un-preachy kind of way – why it matters.  This is a book of enjoyment and of revelation.”
