The Pennine Way

The Pennine Way
The Pennine Way is often considered to one of biggest challenges a walker can face in the UK. Stretching for 255 miles the Pennine Way will take a good walker 16 days to complete and requires endurance and a strong will.

The walk starts at Edale in the Peak District taking you through some of the wildest upland in the UK, you will cross the Pennine Ridge through the Yorkshire Dales and into Northumberland from were you head into the Cheviots before finishing your walk at Kirk Yetholm on the Scottish Borders. There are many highlights to the walk not least High Cup Nick Valley, Swadale and the desolate Cheviot Hills. Historical points of interest include Haworth home of the Bronte’s, Hadrian’s Wall and the Settle to Carlisle Railway.

Much of the Pennine Way takes you through countryside which can be dangerous particularly with changeable weather. Walkers should always plan ahead ensure they have the right equipment and remember to carry emergency supplies.
