Introduction
Of all the long-distance trails in the British Isles the Pennine Way, 256 miles (412km) along the backbone of northern England, is pre-eminent. The first to be opened as a National Trail, to some it’s the best; it’s certainly the best known and it’s arguably the hardest.
Anyone who completes the Pennine Way will refute the suggestion that it was easy. It isn’t. It requires fitness, determination, good humour and adaptability because your walk won’t go smoothly all the time. There will be days when nothing seems to go right and you wish you’d never got out of bed; then again, there will be others when you feel invincible, when you can walk all day and arrive at your next stop, still with a spring in your step – when to be alive is ‘very heaven’.
The Way takes you through most of the different habitats of flora and fauna in this country and you’ll see a wonderfully varied and wide range of plant and animal life. You’ll start with a testing trudge over the peat moors of the Peak District and continue through the South Pennines past such milestones as Stoodley Pike and Calder Vale where a short detour to Hebden Bridge is recommended. You are into Brontë country and will pass Top Withens, said to be the Wuthering Heights of Emily’s great novel. The parsonage where the family lived in nearby Haworth is well worth visiting……
****
….. Some who have walked the Pennine Way say it has changed their lives. It certainly gives everyone a chance to prove to themselves what they are capable of: ‘I never thought I could do it’, they say yet the Way has shown them there’s nothing you can’t do once you set your mind to it. Spiritual experience or great fun, hard work or the walk of a lifetime, maybe a combination of all four, the Pennine Way stands supreme.
