This guide couldn't even use the correct map of Yorkshire

Reviewed on February 25, 2022
Paperback | Verified

This guide couldn't even use the correct map of Yorkshire. It appears to have been based upon the local government map (pot hole fillers and bin emptiers), but NOT the real borders of Yorkshire. The map in this guide excludes southern Teesdale, the Forest of Bowland, Sedbergh and the Saddleworth District of the West Riding. The correct Yorkshire Map is above. Oh, and not all of Sheffield is in Yorkshire.
