A Pennine Journey
From Settle to Hadrian's Wall in Wainwright's footsteps
In September 1938, A. Wainwright made a solitary walk through the Pennines.
The following year he wrote up an account of this walk, which was eventually published in 1986. This illustrated guide, written by members of the Wainwright Society, is a recreation of this walk adapted for today’s roads and rights-of-way, taking a route that Wainwright might have chosen if he was planning it today. The route is 247 miles long and divided into 18 stages. With maps and illustrations inspired by the work of the great AW, this labour of love is essential for all those who wish to follow in Wainwright’s footsteps.
