An insightful guide co-written with Guardian reporter Martin Wainwright.
My contribution to this nicely opinionated and outspoken guide were the chapters on the region's three national parks - the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors and the Peak District.
I visited museums, caves, churches and country houses, devising walk routes, and inspecting hotels and B&Bs.
Which? Guides - no longer published - had a reputation for thoroughness and honesty. No payments accepted for inclusion in the book; all inspections were anonymous, and in those days a research budget generously covered the travel and accommodation costs, making it possible to research an area thoroughly.
