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 Club 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. This will certainly be the case once the route has been fully waymarked and then marked on future Ordnance Survey maps. The PJSC is now recognised by the appropriate highway authorities as the 'Responsible Organisation' for the Pennine Journey.

Officers of the Club
President: Ron Scholes
Chairman: David Pitt
Secretary: Heather Pitt
Treasurer: Catherine McDonnell
Route Coordinator: Jill King
Development Officer: position vacant

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.


If you wish to join the Pennine Journey Supporters Club then simply download the membership form, complete and return to the address on the form together with a cheque for the initial annual subscription of £2.47. It is hoped that members will opt to pay future annual subscriptions by standing order and you can download a form for completion and forwarding on to your bank.

All members will receive a lifetime membership card, to avoid the expense of annual ones, on receipt of their initial subscription. At the inaugural meeting it was agreed that the philosophy of the Club should be that of an organisation requiring minimal administration and so every effort will be made to make it as paperless as possible by the use of electronic means of communication.

It is hoped that once the Club has become established, members will appreciate that they can play a significant role without it being time-consuming and take their turn in becoming committee members so bringing to it new ideas and initiatives. The Development Plan attracted considerably support from parishes along the route and this support will be fostered to provide local input and create real local links. These could come from other walking organisations or local groups.

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 Jill King at at route@penninejourney.org.ukor on 01642 645789.

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