Pennine Way Anniversary

The 24th April marks the 50th anniversary of the Pennine Way, the UK's very first National Trail. The trail begins in Edale and stretches all the way to Kirk Yetholm in Northumbria and can take between 16 and 19 days to walk the whole 268 mile length. 

There is a lot of activity planned to celebrate the anniversary, details of which can be found on the National Trails website. Losehill House is on Edale's doorstep and a great place to rest up before attempting to walk all or part of the trail - we have rooms available on the 24th April.

A documentary about the Pennine Way has been made and the first episode will be airing tonight on BBC One Yorkshire & Lincolnshire, North East & Cumbria, and the North West. It will also available nationwide on iPlayer for 30 days thereafter.
