This first section of the Pennine Way starts in the Peak District taking you along some of its classical trails. Leaving the Peak District, you will move into Yorkshire crossing mostly moorland with small villages, green lush countryside, and reservoirs thrown into the mix. Towards the end of this section, you will enter the Yorkshire Dales, traversing the limestone landscape you will climb one of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent before ending this section in Horton-In-Ribblesdale.
The Kinder Scout National Reserve:
The Kinder Scout walk is not only famous because of its stunning landscapes full of rocky pass and green hills. It’s famous because, on the 24th of April 1932, a mass trespass was planned on the Kinder Scout walk because walkers didn’t have the entire access to the site and sometimes when they asked for it they were refused. So on this day, 400 people walked across the walk to protest against the law.
A lovely typical village of the Derbyshire
Starting in Edale with this charming home made of stone and slate, you will make your way through the Yorkshire to Hebden Bridge. The town is laid between mountains and rivers. Then you will make your road to Malham, a town where houses are built to follow the shape of hilly roads and where nature and people seem to live for each other.
The Hot Dog was invented in the USA by Harry M Stevens who was born in Litchurch, Derby. So if you want to have a snack, go ahead! You’ve found the place! Plus you can also try the Buxton pudding. A layer of raspberry preserves and a sponge cake-style crumbly top on a sweet pastry base! Yummy!
