Guidebook to the 270 mile Pennine Way National Trail that runs from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm, on the border of Scotland. It's a long walk and a hard walk, but one that is well worth the effort. Most walkers take two or three weeks to walk the way, and on average it tends to work out at around 18 days. The guide gives a detailed description of the official route, with variants and is illustrated with photographs throughout the seasons and OS map extracts. With full information about accommodation, public transport and other facilities available. The Pennine Way was the first long-distance path to be created in Britain, back in 1965. It traverses the backbone of England, striving to stay high on the moors, yet dropping down to little towns and villages each evening. It has always been a popular trail, rightly regarded as a challenge, running higher and wilder than any other National Trail.
Paddy Dillon is a prolific walker and guidebook writer, with over 40 books to his name, including 20 current guidebooks for Cicerone. Born and reared close to the Pennine Way, he has walked the entire route three times and covered many parts of the route on dozens of occasions, throughout the seasons, in all kinds of weather.
