    In September with the country on the brink of conflict, Alfred Wainwright the legendary fell walker, guide book author and illustrator undertook a solitary walk up through the Pennines. His journey started in the market town of Settle in Yorkshire and worked its way up .   The Pennine Journey makes good use of the many existing paths and here we were following the Pennine Bridleway - a path we were familiar with from last year's epic walk A Dales High Way We walked through Langcliffe which is a typical Yorkshire Dales village.

    The Pennine Journey was a varied and challenging walk. The parts where it coincided with the Pennine Way, South Tyne Trail, Dales Way or Hadrian’s Wall were well waymarked, other parts not, but with maps and guidebook were navigable without much difficulty. I n his new book The Pennine Way - the Path, the People, the Journey Andrew McCloy presents a portrait of Britain's oldest and best known long-distance footpath, tracing its remarkable history through the experiences of walkers past and present.. By walking the route himself, miles from the Peak District to the Scottish borders, he discovers how it set a benchmark for personal challenge.

    A Pennine Journey describes an eleven-day journey from Settle in Yorkshire to Hadrian’s Wall and back by Alfred Wainwright as Britain faced the prospect of war with Germany. It depicts the landscape and people of the time, and reveals Wainwright’s attitude to them. The book lay unpublished for 48 years and is considered by many to be AW. The Pennine Way is a National Trail in England, with a small section in Scotland. The trail stretches for miles ( km) from Edale, in the northern Derbyshire Peak District, north through the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park and ends at Kirk Yetholm, just inside the Scottish path runs along the Pennine hills, sometimes described as the "backbone of England".Designation: UK National Trail.
