Pennine Way National Trail Guide

Pennine Way National Trail Guide

by: Damian Hall
The Pennine Way was Britain's first National Trail, opened back in 1965. It follows the spine of the Pennine range all the way from the rugged Peak District, through the glorious Yorkshire Dales, along the stirring Hadrian's Wall to the underrated Cheviots and Scotland. The 268 miles (431km) are arguably the most demanding challenge Britain offers the long distance walker.

The route includes landscapes that inspire great writers; a tour of cosy pubs, welcoming cafes and numerous charming villages you've probably never heard of but may never want to leave; insights into the Bronze Age, Romans, Vikings and Normans; a fascinating geological field trip. Most of all, it's a walk through life-affirming natural beauty; simply some of the wildest, remotest and best upland walking in England.

This official guide is the essential companion you need as it includes detailed route finding descriptions to guide you safely along plus Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale Explorer mapping of the entire route plus around 300 GPS references. The text also includes background information on everything from archaeology and history to wild flowers and wildlife. There is also practical advice on public transport, equipment, accommodation and places of interest to assist with planning and the book is lavishly illustrated with colour photography throughout.
