Forest of Bowland

Description

Hills, moorland, gritstone fells, in northern England, north of Manchester. The central area is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The word "Forest" does not so much denote a collection of trees, but rather a royal hunting ground. The area is barren. The hills rise to 500 - 600 m. The Forest of Bowland is a good destination for those hikers who enjoy the more desolate areas.
