This pictorial guide, written by members of the Wainwright Society, is a re-creation of Wainwright's walk adapted for today’s roads and rights-of-way, taking a route that Wainwright might have chosen if he was planning it today.

Pennine Journey

  • In September 1938 A. Wainwright made a solitary walk through the Pennines. The following year he wrote up an account of this walk, which was eventually published as A Pennine Journey in 1986. The route is 247 miles long and divided into eighteen stages. With maps and illustrations inspired by the work of the great AW, this labour of love is essential for all those who wish to follow in Wainwright’s footsteps.
