Britain's oldest, toughest and best-known long-distance footpath, the Pennine Way stretches 427km (266 miles) from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. Showcasing the wild beauty of the North, it crosses three National Parks - the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park - plus the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall.
This map booklet contains all the OS 1:25,000 Explorer mapping you need to complete the Pennine Way National Trail, saving the space, weight and expense of multiple map sheets. Conveniently sized to slip in a jacket pocket or rucksack top, it comes in a clear PVC sleeve.
NOTE An accompanying Cicerone guidebook - The Pennine Way - describes the full route from south to north with lots of other practical and historical information. The accompanying guidebook INCLUDES a copy of this map booklet.
