Northern Limestone (2004)
Authors: Alan James, Mark Glaister and Chris Craggs
Published: July 2004
Stock: Sorry, this has sold out

Northern Limestone was the most comprehensive guide ever published to limestone in England – it weighed in at 384 pages and covered every major limestone crag between Dove Dale in the south, and Chapel Head Scar in the north, with over 2500 routes described in detail. It sold for 6 years and sold out in February 2010.

Next Print Edition - The next edition is going to be too big to fit into one book so we will be splitting it back up again. Peak Limestone was published in May 2012. We are hoping to get Yorkshire Limestone out in 2014.
