Great Mountain Biking addresses this issue detailing hundreds of areas throughout England & Wales to go mountain biking. A great publication that should be a constant companion of new or seasoned mountain bikers that are actively looking for places to explore - or are just in a new part of the country on business and pleasure with an hour or two of free time!
