Public Transport based walk with John Ireland.
This is the first in a series of walks aiming to cover the whole Pennine Way from Edale all the way up to the Scottish Border, going from the start of the Pennine Way in Edale up over Kinder Scout to Torside and then going along the Longdendale Trail to Hadfield.
As we are near to Manchester we can do these walks in a day using the train, however as we get further north some of the walks will involve overnight stays using Hostels or Bunkhouses along the way.
