The Inn Way... series of walking guide books by Mark Reid offer an enjoyable and unique approach to discovering the wonderful countryside of England’s North Country... as well as its wealth of hidden and unspoilt pubs.

The Inn Way - the Ultimate Pub Walks

Discover for yourself the rich and varied landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, North York Moors, Northumberland and Peak District. Inspirational landscapes, beautiful villages, local food and drink, history and heritage, classic country pubs - it's what walking is all about.
