Howardian Hills Guidebooks and Maps
Below, RambleFest displays Howardian Hills guidebooks and maps, and provides the facility for buying them online.
The Howardian Hills form a distinctive area of well-wooded undulating countryside between the flat agricultural plains of Pickering and York.
Jurassic limestone gives the landscape its character, and the irregular 180m ridges of the Howardian Hills are a southern extension of the rocks of the North York Moors. It contains a rich and intimate tapestry of wooded hills and valleys, pastures and rolling farmland, as well as dramatic views from the higher ground across the agricultural plains. On the eastern edge the river Derwent cuts through the Hills in the Kirkham Gorge, which was formed as an overflow channel from glacial Lake Pickering.
There are no towns, although the market towns of Helmsley and Malton lie just beyond the boundary, but the area has many attractive stone-built, red pantile-roofed villages.
