The Pennine Way is a National Trail, a 268-mile walk (429 km) 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. It has something to offer every long distance walker. The Pennine Way National Trail is a walk starting from Edale in Derbyshire through 3 National Parks finishing at Kirk Yetholm across the Scottish Border. This trek is one of Britain's best known and toughest long distance trails.
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. Starting at the scene of the Kinder Scout, you walk through the Southern Pennines, 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. This is a walk you will never forget. It has historical and cultural interests and beautiful and varied landscape.
