High Force Hotel possibly closed

We receive the following information from a walker recently so would advise verifying the hotel’s status directly before assuming it is open…

“We called in here at the beginning of July and found it all locked up. There was a notice on the door stating that the hotel was closed and that the landlord (Lord Barnard) had terminated the lease with the current person who had held it. All round the hotel gives a somewhat rundown appearance. I will report back when l know more which is probably this coming week.”

“The Pennine Way: A Walker’s Guide” by Chris Sainty

Chris Sainty of the PWA has just finished his book and it’s due out any day now. It goes without saying that we all highly recommend it!

chris sainty pennine way The Pennine Way: A Walkers Guide by Chris Sainty

The Pennine Way: A Walker’s Guide is an amazingly detailed route description of the Pennine Way from Edale to Kirk Yetholm, which with spectacular photographs, provides an ideal companion to Ordnance Survey maps of the trail.

The route description is divided into 19 daily sections, each with a photograph capturing an essence of that day’s walk. Highlighted in the text are points of interest plus snippets of both current and historical information.

The book contains a unique insight into the trail’s history. It includes minutes of the 1938 Conference which took Tom Stephenson’s inspiration forward, and led to the creation of National Parks and Long Distance Footpaths.

This book will whet the taste buds of individuals or groups intending to walk the trail; those wanting to muse over a past Pennine Way journey; or readers who may never walk it but have a genuine interest in the footpath.

The diverse landscapes encountered along this backbone of England, the seasonal variations, plus the physical and mental challenge make the Pennine Way, in the author’s opinion, Britain’s finest National Trail.
