long distance

450km through the Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales, the Pennines, Hadrians Wall and the Cheviots is the Pennine Way.

When we arrived in Kirk Yetholm on Sunday it was two years and over 20 days of walking since we started the Pennine Way at Edale in 2006

We stayed in Youth Hostels and B&Bs along the way and saw some of the most spectacular scenery that the country has to offer. Particular highlights for me were High Cup, Cauldron Snout, Kinder Scout, Kielder Forest - and the hundreds of skylarks hovering and singing even on the wettest and windiest of days.

But the best part of all the Pennine Way is the people who walk and work along the way. Day walkers, end-to-enders, farmers, shepherds, landladies, landlords, hostel wardens, builders, pub locals, visitors and tourists.

I'd love to walk it again - perhaps going end to end in one go next time, but maybe getting someone else to organise the travel and accommodation and possibly to carry my bag for me too.

Maybe next time

Nonetheless, there are some essential factors that need considering
before making any selection. Implementation of solar energy has environmental costs that may hamper its application on large-scale
operations to reduce its impact. Light fixtures like floor
lamps and chandeliers come in a wide variety.
