Pennine Way Story relates the tale of my epic, fun filled attempt to nearly walk the whole of the 268 mile national trail along the "backbone "of England.


This is a very useful guide to all those who have already done the walk themselves or anyone planning to do it without the least bit of guidance.

Pennine Way Story is the fault of George Tod whose excellent, extensive and informative web site, which I stumbled across a few years ago, gave me the idea of putting my own experiences on the net. All complaints, therefore, should be addressed to George.
