The Pennine Way was the first of Britain’s national trails. This challenging trail runs for 270 miles (435km) traversing the high ground between the Peak District and the Scottish Borders.
On its way from Edale to Kirk Yetholm, the route passes through three national parks and a huge Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Although much of the landscape is high and wild, facilities along the Pennine Way are well established. Several well-worn stretches have been paved with stone and are much easier to follow than in previous years.
This is a long walk and a hard walk, but one that is well worth the effort. Suitable for fit and experienced long distance walkers, most take two or three weeks to walk the way, and on average it tends to work out at around 18 days.
The author Paddy Dillon has also written an inspirational guidebook that looks at each of the 19 National Trails in turn, revealing the charcter and charm of each trail.
