The Pennine Way is a 250 mile long distance footpath which starts at Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District and ends in Kirk Yetholm in Scotland. Along the way Britain's longest public access footpath takes in the sights of the Peak District, Bronte Country, The Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Dales and the wild fells of Northumbria before crossing Hadrian's Wall and on to Kirk Yetholm in Scotland.
Attractions en route in the Peak District include the moonscape plateau of Kinder Scout, the deep valley of Longdendale with its several reservoirs, and the treacherous bogs and quicksands of Black Hill.
From the Peak District the Pennine Way heads north into West Yorkshire's Bronte Country and on into the Yorkshire Dales. [N.B. For more information on these parts of the route please see the separate pages covering the Pennine Way in Bronte Country and the Pennine Way in the Yorkshire Dales
