Overview

'The North Pennines is the northernmost section of the Pennine range of hills which runs north–south through northern England. It lies between Carlisle to the west and Darlington to the east. It is bounded to the north by the Tyne Valley and to the south by the Stainmore Gap ... The North Pennines was designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1988 for its moorland scenery, the product of centuries of farming and lead-mining. At almost 2,000 square kilometres (770 sq mi) it is the second largest of the 49 AONBs in the United Kingdom.'

'My descriptions of the walks are not of the sort to tell you exactly the route in specific detail as l believe that all walkers should carry the relevant OS Explorer map and a compass or GPS, preferably both should your batteries run out! Our OS maps are the best that l see in whatever country l visit and we should use them.'
