I left The Old Nags Head, Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District to walk Britain's oldest and most famous long distance trail, The Pennine Way (here's a map of the route), a distance of 268 miles (428 kms) on Saturday July 1st 2000 and arrived at The Border Hotel, Kirk Yetholm, just north of the Scottish border, on Sunday July 16th.

"You Must be B****y Mad!"

Why on earth walk all that way when you can take a bus? These are my reasons. What were yours if you done it or a similar trek?

Coming Up Soon Eventually

I'm planning a few special features on how the Way's marked, how to cross fences and walls, cairns (what are they and what are they for?), the good and bad of Pennine Way accommodation and anything else you let me know you'd like to see (other than my a**e!).
