In 1965 the Pennine Way was designated as Britain’s first National Trail. The full walk runs from Edale to Kirk Yetholm, and today it is one of the UK’s most famous long-distance footpaths. This magnificent walk crosses three national parks; the wild and rugged Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales with its windswept moorlands and green farmland, and Northumberland, a mix of high hills, dales and crystal clear rivers. The wonderful sights of the heavenly Swaledale Valley and waterfalls, such as High Force, greet you as you follow trails to the fascinating and historical sights of old Roman mile castles and forts in Hadrian's Wall country. Cross the rugged Cheviot Hills further north, all the way.
