Walk the Pennine Way
Updated 21st April 2011
The Pennine Way is arguably the finest long distance walk in the UK. The North-South route follows the Pennine tops along the rugged backbone of England from the Cheviots hills, over Hadrian's Wall, then on through the Yorkshire Dales, and ending in the Derbyshire Peak District. You can of course also walk from the South to the North, and a greater number of walkers probably tackle the walk in this direction

We set out from Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish borders to walk the Pennine Way to Edale in Derbyshire. Starting on August 21st our route covered over 260 miles following the Pennine Way southwards through the heart of Northern England. Walking an average of 20 miles a day and camping each night we arrived in Edale 14 days later on Wednesday September 3rd.

The walk, which we had been planning for over a year was both a personal challenge and a fundraising event. People from across the UK and around the world have pledged sponsorship for the successful completion of the challenge.

Money raise from the walk was used to support community and international projects by the Rotary Club of Dronfield in Rotary District 1220
