Starting at the foot of Pen-y-Ghent, you will initially ascend down onto the limestone moors which are a major characteristic of this section of the Pennine Way. By the end of your first days walking you can reward yourself with some Wensleydale Cheese. The following days take you over country meadows, up and down over the moor passes, and some beautiful waterfalls. The gentle rolling of the moors will build you up for the highest point on the Pennine Way, Cross Fell. The final day finishes with a delightful stroll along the river and across farmlands ending in the quiet village of Knarsdale.

This final section leaves the Pennine Way taking you to Hadrian’s Wall which you will follow over the rolling hills of the escarpment that it is built upon. Leaving the wall behind, you have a pleasant stretch through forests, over farmland and country roads strolling on the heather moorland at an easier pace than more easy-going forest and river paths. This easy-going stretch proceeds to the final day which is also the longest. Don’t be deterred however as you will have built up your stamina for this day and after the initial steep climb you will traverse the undulating ridge all the way to the final stop Kirk Yetholm in Scotland.

The second section of Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk starts roughly at the half-way point of the full Coast to Coast walking trail across Northern England. This journey will take you from Kirkby Stephen all the way to the North Sea on the East coast. You’ll amble over the picturesque Pennines, the backbone of Britain, and follow the Swale river as it rolls down to the coast. You will cross several stunning landscapes on this trip! If one stage is walked per day, with one or two rest days, the route makes a great two-week holiday.
