The Pennine Way

Those who walk the Pennine Way never forget it.

As a teenager in the nineteen-sixties, I heard of the Pennine Way before I heard of The Beatles: before any of us heard of The Beatles.

By the autumn of 1963 The Beatles had become the hottest pop property of all time, and the media had created the ‘Swinging Sixties’.

Newsreels of 1963 chronicle world-changing events – Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech; the assassination of JFK – and uniquely British dramas – the Profumo affair; the Great Train Robbery – but for me 1963 will always be the year of the Pennine Way.

In these pages you will find all my recorded journeys along the Pennine Way, from the first walk in 1963 to the 50th anniversary walk in 2013.
