You are here: England » Pennine Way
The Pennine Way is a long established long distance footpath. It is 267 miles/431 km long and runs from Edale Village in the northern Peak District to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders.
In its early days, it could be very boggy in places but it is now much improved.
There was no initial intention to include the Pennine Way on this website but as various parts of it had been covered by other routes, it suddenly seemed sensible to create a section for it then slowly fill in the gaps between existing uploaded routes in other sections. Where possible each route starts and finishes on a road to allow for easy support access.
There are many books available and the route was made more famous by Wainwright who published a detailed guide.
Over the years, the route has been modified and there is now also a Pennine Bridleway.
At 17/10/19, all sections of the Pennine Way had been uploaded apart from some of the alternatives to the main route.
