Somehow I did not get notified that you posted a reply. Anyway thanks for the recommendation. I posted my itinerary on this site under "Comments on my trip". If you have any other suggestion that would be great. I will get the book you suggested. Thanks again.

Without doubt the best book to take with you is the Dales Way Route Guide by Arthur Gemmell and Colin Speakman priced at 5.99p. available from STILE Publications 16 Denton Rd, Middleton, ILKLEY LS29 0AA. It contains useful info and accurate maps with associated walks. Highly recommended.

Until I know your itinerary it is difficult to suggest other/additional sections to walk.
