Join the Pennine Journey Supporters Club



Following the decision by the Wainwright Society’s committee to 'stand aside' from the Pennine Journey project a 'Pennine Journey Supporters Club' was established. The PJSC was inaugurated on 31st March 2012 and the Charity Commission’s 'Small Charity Constitution' adopted.

At the inaugural meeting it was agreed that the Club will initially concentrate entirely on its core purpose of promoting and supporting the Pennine Journey route so that this tribute to AW becomes permanent. The PJSC is now recognised by the appropriate highway authorities as the 'Responsible Organisation' for the Pennine Journey.

Prior to the Club’s establishment £3,000 was raised towards the cost of waymarking the route and it is not envisaged that the Club should need to become involved in any major fundraising. Consequently a modest annual subscription is all that should be needed in the future and as the Pennine Journey route measures 247 miles then the annual subscription, for the foreseeable future, will be £2.47.

Officers of the Club
President: Ron Scholes
Chairman: David Pitt
Membership Secretary: Heather Leach
Publicity Officer: David Pitt
Treasurer/Social Media
: Catherine McDonnell
Route Coordinator: Robert Cullen
Accommodation Register: Jill King

The Pennine Journey Supporters Club is recognised by the relevant highway authorities as being the 'Responsible Organisation' for the Pennine Journey long-distance footpath. One of the requirements before agreeing to the route being way marked was to establish some kind of monitoring/reporting arrangement and, as a result, an annual monitoring of the route in early spring takes place. The reasoning behind this is that any problems resulting from winter weather can be spotted before later spring growth obscures them plus it gives the authorities time to rectify any problems.

Each spring, volunteers walk and monitor a section reporting back on any issues. If you would like to volunteer on any of the blank sections, then please contact David Pitt at info@penninejourney.org.uk

Do look to using local buses or trains, using 2 vehicles or making a circular walk and ENJOY.

The This tick signifies that the section has been walked and checked symbol shows that a section has been allocated and will be monitored for 2020.
