The Pennine Way stretches for 268 miles from Northumberland to the northern Peak District, with the majority of the route passing through Yorkshire. This selection of walks from our archive closely pass by or take in sections of the national trail.
Hawes and the Cam Road
The Pennine Way has incorporated much of the Roman Cam Road which were major throughfares in the past, we explore the countryside around popular Hawes.
The Pennine Way loops down to meet Horton-in-Ribblesdale and just north again towards Pen-Y-Ghent and we follow a small section in the early part of this walk.
Pen-Y-Ghent and Plover Hill
We take the section of the Pennine Way that leads up the the heights of Pen-Y-Ghent, we leave it to carry onto Plover Hill.
Malham Tarn to Arncliffe
The Pennine Way moves south right through the centre of the village, but before it gets there, it circles the north and eastern edges of Malham Tarn, and it is from here where we begin this walk.
Airton is named after the River Aire, and we shadow its namesake along the path of the national trail for much of this walk.
Into the moors of West Yorkshire, we head west to Pennine Way, but take in some of the famous Bronte landmarks such as the Top Withens farmhouse and the waterfalls.
Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley
A few miles south is Hebden Bridge, a popular starting point for walks. We set off to join the Pennine Way on its journey to Stoodley Pike and an exploration of the Calder Valley.
We skirts the borders of Yorkshire and Greater Manchester in this walk. The Pennine Way passes a number of reservoirs in this area and we explore them in this walk from Littleborough.
Another reservoir-centris walk. This time we journey south from Marsden and make our way past a procession of no fewer than half a dozen reservoirs strung out across the moors.
Marsden to Northern Rotcher
Another walk from Marsden, in this one we head directly west to join the Pennine Way to discover an old Roman Fort and strange natural rock formations.
