Aspiring to gain National Trail status for the Pennine Journey

We are excited to be able to announce that the next stage in the journey of ‘A Pennine Journey’ is to be a campaign to have its status designated as a National Trail as a tribute to Alfred Wainwright to be achieved by 25th September 2028 - the 90th anniversary of him leaving Settle on his ‘A Pennine Journey’.

We have been in preliminary discussions with the National Trail authorities who emphasise that nothing would be possible whilst they are still working on the England Coast Path as well as completing the Pennine Bridleway. However they did say we could say we have “aspirations towards National Trail status” and this comment can be seen on our campaign emblem which symbolises the three walks for which AW will long be remembered.

The Club has come a long way in the 8 years of its existence but are confident that we can add this last step to follow those of waymarking the route and having the Ordnance Survey mark the route on their maps.

We invite all Wainwright admirers to join us and help us to make this tribute a reality
