9780711233683: Pennine Way Companion 2nd Ed.

The Pennine Way - England's first continuous long-distance path for walkers - stretches for 268 miles from Derbyshire to the Scottish Borders along the length of the Pennines. Inaugurated in 1965, it has become one of the most popular long-distance footpaths in Britain. For those starting in the south, it runs from Edale in Derbyshire through the old West and North Ridings of Yorkshire, Westmorland, Cumberland, and Northumberland before reaching its northern terminus at Kirk Yetholm, just over the Scottish border. Wainwright's handwritten guide to the route, with its magnificent detailed maps and occasionally tongue-in-cheek text, was first published in 1968. This new edition has been brilliantly revised and updated by Chris Jesty to meet the goal Wainwright set for the original edition: 'to enable walkers to follow the Pennine Way without putting a foot wrong...'

About the Author:

CHRIS JESTY trained as a cartographer with the Ordnance Survey. He devised Scafell Pike Panorama, a guide to the view from the highest mountain in England, for which Wainwright provided illustrations. When Wainwright's health deteriorated, Chris helped him with the maps for two of his large-format books. Shortly before he died, Wainwright said that if ever the Pictorial Guides were to be revised, Chris Jesty should be given the job. He lives in Kendal.

Review:

Wainwright's wonderfully detailed maps, combined with Jesty's knowledge of cartography, ensures that walkers never put a foot wrong along this historic trail Grange Now
