[Talk-GB] Yorkshire Dales or Forest of Bowland - unmapped areas?

Thanks everyone for the suggestions here.

After some consideration I've decided to stay in Kettlewell, in Upper Wharfedale. This is accessible by bus from Skipton.
It looks semi-complete but that might just be Mike's aerial/OOC work.

I plan to be in the area from late Jan 1st to early afternoon Jan 4th... so would anyone be interested in doing some mapping on those days?
Can't make the weekend unfortunately due to other commitments.

Well, the scenery around Malham and upper Wharfedale, Nidderdale, Swaledale is simply the best in the world ... Though I do admit to a slight bias. The beer int half bad neether.

I have very extensively mapped and cross-referenced  Wharfedale+ paths and tracks from Npe, os25k and Bing but the area is crying out for extensive ground truthing, in particular adding modern official designations (hallo Freemap!) Perhaps only 20 - 40% is done? I only get to do one or two walks per year.

Am thinking of getting away for 2 or 3 days early in the new year (1st-4th Jan) to somewhere hilly in the north of England within easy reach (by train/bus) of the Manchester area I haven't been to very often before, which would mean the Dales or the Forest of Bowland. Anyone from that area familiar with any areas which have good scenery and haven't had much in the way of footpath mapping?

Looking round the area on OSM it seems fairly well covered but then I don't know it too well.

If I decide on somewhere likely I can always organise a mapping party.
