Welcome to Pennine Walker!

The aim of this website is to share the great time I have exploring the hills and mountains of the north of England (and beyond).


The home page has links to the most recent walks that I've done.


To access other walks, the links to the Walking Diaries can be used which contains the walks done during that particular year or the walks can be accessed by the area in which the walk was done.


To find out more about me and this site please see About this site.

My new website is now online. The address is http://www.penninewalker.net/

My last walk of 2015 is the final one that will appear on this website. I've known for a while that because of how I started this site in 2011 I was approaching the point where I wouldn't be able to add any more new content. The turn of the year was a good point to stop and make a decision as to what to do. After giving it some thought I've decided to start a new site. It's going to be while before I put it online, until I feel I've got enough content I won't publish it. Over time I'll transfer the content across and close this one down.

Last site update: 6th January 2016, a Peak District walk added.

Last walk done: 29th December 2015 - A Four Edges Walk
