Pennine Way

The Pennine Way

The Pennine Way National Trail is a 268 mile (429 Km) route from Edale in Derbyshire’s Peak District to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. It crosses some of the finest upland landscapes in England, from the Peak District, through the Yorkshire Dales, across the North Pennines and over Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland to the Cheviots. It was the very first National Trail, opened on 24th April 1965, and remains one of the most famous.

Holmhead is directly on the route of the Pennine Way, about half a mile north of Greenhead.
