The Pennine Way is the first, and some would say the toughest, of Britain's National Trails. It runs for 256 miles up from Edale in the Peak District along the crest of the Pennines - sometimes known as the Backbone of England - and the Cheviot Hills of Northumberland across the Scottish Border to the village of Kirk Yetholm.
This book is a celebration of the Pennine Way. While covering the important highlights, it also meanders from the official path where there are points of interest along the way.
