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.  This will not be a priority so the Pennine Way routes may build very slowly.  When finished, each route will start and finish 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 15/8/19, detailed routes have been uploaded from Edale to where the Pennine Way leaves Hadrian's Wall and heads north.  Further north, two routes have been included between Chew Green andAuchope Cairn which includes Windy Gyle and The Cheviot.  In time, the whole of the Pennine Way will appear in this section but it does not have a high priority!
