The Pennine Way has something to offer every long distance walker. You want to test your stamina and endurance? Here is a 270-mile walk that will take you from the Peak District National Park along the Pennine ridge through the Yorkshire Dales, up into Northumberland, across the Cheviots, setting you down in the Scottish Borders.
You like some historical and cultural interest to brighten your walk? Starting at the scene of the Kinder Scout mass trespasses of the 1930s, you walk through the Southern Pennines, cradle of the Industrial Revolution, pass Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters, cross the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales, follow the Settle to Carlisle Railway and enter a huge Pennine area that was exploited by every kind of mining activity, the lead industry in particular. Next: the Roman Wall and beyond that the territory of the Scottish Border rievers.
As with all walks, sound planning is important. There are sections of the route, especially at each end, which require careful thought about accommodation; advance booking is advisable at most times of the year.
The Pennine Way takes you into isolated country. That is part of the exhilaration, of course, but consider the challenges and responsibilities such country brings with it. On a multi-day expedition such as this you are almost certain to experience a variety of British weather. In high and wild places this can include dangerous extremes. Pay close attention to detail in your choice of equipment. Brush up your navigation skills, carry the appropriate large-scale maps and know how to use them.
This is one walk you'll never forget completing!
