“Be inspired to discover a meaningful and rewarding exploration through the medium of an enjoyable days walking”

John Dixon’s books offer a superb guide for family rambles or lone explorations by taking in a rustic arcadia steeped in history, through some of Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales’ finest rural landscapes.

Extensively researched with easy to follow maps and instructions, the reader is taken back over 3000 years, by reconstructing life in those times. Wandering through the homesteads and now grassed over monuments of those early settlers, one is brought forward to current times, taking in the social, economic and political developments that have formed the landscape we know today.

John’s innovative writing and sharp wit continues to entertain and enlighten readers. His disciplines of archaeology, architecture, philology and history are brought together and presented in a format that everyone can understand and gain from. Each book captures the reader’s imagination with beautiful illustrations by artists, Jaana Jarvinen, Bob Mann and Sheila Carter.

“Rambling is to wander in search of knowledge and wisdoM…I love wandering…”
