North Pennines

The North Pennines offers a wealth of QMD options. I have to say, if I’d realised what they have to offer I’d have spent more time up there. But as it is I haven’t, at the time of writing, visited the area so all routes are Indicative only.

The main problem I see with this area, as with most of England and Wales, is the large number of obstructions in the form of fences and walls. This means lots of crossing over, under, or through these obstructions taking care not to damage them unless you have genuine concern that they may damage you or your possessions (CRoW Act).

Nonetheless, there is a real wealth of open access and no shortage of summits. The ground looks good once you are up on top and there are plenty of features. What is particularly interesting is the large number of grouse butts and curricks.

I’ve tried to take account of some interesting features on the indicative routes and make use of some PRoW and smaller paths, as ever. This is explained in more detail in the blog post on Planning QMDs (forthcoming).

This is a country I really look forward to visiting as it seems not to have suffered from disneyfication and macdonaldisation.

This country also has the Pennine Way running through it which can, of course, be incorporated nicely into QMDs. And I’ve spelt Pennine wrong on the GPX files. Apologies.
