Alpine Exploratory's Rob Gale completed the Pennine Way in March, April and May 2018. Rob made several shorter visits, to complete the route in sections. This is our recce before the 2018 season.


At Colden Clough the old packhorse bridge is under repair, passable with care.


Hadrian's Wall from above Once Brewed.


Hadrian's Wall with the moorland of the North to the Right.


The double bridge over the canal at East Marton.


At Fountains Fell in the Yorkshire Dales.



High Cup Nick.




A path winds through Ing Scar.



Leaving High Cup on the way down to Dufton.



Pen-y-ghent in the Dales. This approach is the opposite from the usual one from Horton-in-Ribblesdale. The Pennine Way takes a bold route over Fountains Fell and across the moor to Pen-y-ghent.



The shelter after the highest hills of the Cheviot.



Long moorland approach to Stoodley Pike in West Yorkshire.



At Top Withens above Haworth.



Watlows Raven Scar.



At Wessenden Head, an iron picture frame.



Looking to Windy Gyle, the summit before the Cheviot. This is the long two-day run into Kirk Yetholm.

Thanks Rob!
