Description

To replace its previous two-volume guide to the Pennine Way, Aurum now publishes an entirely new one-volume guide for the 21st-century walker.

The Pennine Way is Britain' s toughest long-distance path, running 268 miles from Derbyshire' s Peak District up through the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria and Northumberland into the Scottish Borders. Until now, Aurum' s Trail Guide has covered it in two volumes, where our competitors publish one, and those volumes have been bulked out with circular day walks which no-one essaying the arduous task of walking even a stretch of the Path will realistically want to divert to do.

Now, Damian Hall, one of Country Walking' s senior contributors, has written a completely new guide, giving all the information the modern walker requires: GPS references, gradients of each section, public transport links, extensive details of the wildlife and flora to be seen along the way, and a guide for occasional walkers to the real highlight stretches of the path.

Review quote

Damian Hall has developed this new single-volume book, containing everything a 21st Century walker could want This new one-volume official guide to the entire 268-mile route of Britain's first national trail does not underestimate the challenge it sets long-distance walkers. While the author maintains that it offers soem of the wildest, remotest and best upland walking in England, he admits that it's the roughest and toughest national trail of them all. You may find yourself reconsidering the trail after the first paragraph, with his honest tone, but those who dare to read on will find themselves packing before completing it.
