What This Site is All About

This website is all about the experiences I had when, at 13 years of age I walked the Pennine Way
in the Summer of 1995. This site has been online since December 1997, but has been almost
untouched since then. However 8 years on I have finally got around to completing what I started,
and so over the next week weeks and months a brand new design and full update will be
happening.

Thank you for being so patient everyone whom I have promised to that the site would be
completed. The first major change return visitors will see is the new navigation tree to the left. Let
me know if you like it.

As this site is still work in progress a few pages may have bad links, be incomplete or not even
started yet. Please bear with me as they will be done soon. If you are in need of a section which
falls into that category please let me know.


SO WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT THEN?

My Web site will be mainly about the great, and to many unknown outdoors, of the English
Pennines and one of the most famous long distance walks in England, The Pennine way. To me
being out miles from nowhere for most the day, with spectacular views almost at every turn is one
of the most rewarding and relaxing things you can do, even in bad weather (unless it is very bad
weather.)

Most of the information on my pages will be from my own experiences as I walked the Pennine way
in the summer of 1995, when I was just 13 years old with my father Frank, over the six week
summer holidays. The walk is a demanding 271 miles up the back bone of England over the
roughest, hilliest and physically testing areas that England can throw at you especially in some
places around the Cheviots and Peak district.

Most people are able to walk it take around 18 walking days to complete it. However, most people
complete the walk it in 21 days, with 2 or 3 rest days along the way, the way I did it in. Not only
does rest days allow you to have fun in some of the beautiful destinations you will find your self in,
and also it is almost physically impossible unless you have plenty of walking experience to do 18
solid walking days over this terrain especially if you are carrying a heavy rucksack.

This is all very well and good for most people, but if you want to be a Pennine way record breaker,
this is what you have to break.

If you are on your own you can try running it faster than in 3 days 5 hours and 21 minutes or an
average of 85 miles a day or if you are with your family or friends try breaking the relay record of
52 hours and 32 minutes or 125 miles a day. The usual average days walking distance is 15 miles.
