Synopsis

A Pennine Journey From Settle to Hadrian's Wall in Wainwright's Footsteps by David Pitt

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.

Reviews

The passion that David Pitt has for the Pennines shines through every page. Anyone who does his walk will perhaps judge it to be a more interesting route than the official Pennine Way. Yorkshire Post Sure to be welcomed by all Wainwright devotees and gives another adventure to those who have completed all his previous routes. Westmorland Gazette It's my favourite of all Wainwright's books. Now, members of the Wainwright Society have undertaken their own pilgrimage, distilling his route into a guidebook almost worthy of the master himself. -- John Manning TGO: The Great Outdoors A superb guide, excellently illustrated in Wainwright style. A must have for the serious, or armchair walker. Yorkshire Dales Review Worthy of a place on the bookshelf alongside the classics of Wainwright himself, but even more so as a companion out on the moors on a Pennine Journey. Strider

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
