The Haunted Way is a novel written by a friend of mine, Neil Wesson, that incorporates an actual long distance walk of approximately 30 miles.
The walk starts in Branholme, East Hull. Following the Pennine Trail out of Hull the route visits many picturesque East Yorkshire villages and the historic town of Beverely. The walk is completed by reaching the town of Brough.
From Walkington the path follows the Beverley 20 path (another LDWA anytime challange walk) to Welton, where the route incorporates the 'Welton Dale Horse shoe'.
Further walk details can be found on the official Long Distance Walking Association website where various GPS files of the walk can be downloaded (you must be a member of the LDWA to download from the site), however can also be downloaded here.
The Haunted Way book can be downloaded free from the 'obooko' or 'lulu' websites, although hard copies and also be ordered.
