Brigantes Walking Holidays are exploring with the Pennine Journey Supporters Club the possibility of starting an annual Pennine Journey to reflect the original one done by Alfred Wainwright in 1938.
Essentially it would be a very challenging walk along the Pennine Journey route with two modest additions. The first is to take the route over Penyghent before dropping down to Hull Pot to resume the ‘official’ route and the second is to divert from the route to take in the summit of Cross Fell.
The challenge aspect of this journey is for it to be done within the time frame of Alfred Wainwright on his 1938 Pennine Journey. This would mean a start from Settle on 25th September and a return on 5th October – 11 days for the slightly longer version which should be only an extra mile – say 248 miles.
The revised route would take in the summits of the Yorkshire Three Peaks, the highest point on Hadrian’s Wall and, in Cross Fell, the summit of the highest point in England outside the Lake District.
