Dales Society celebrates Pennine Journey milestone
12:23pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
The Yorkshire Dales Society will mark the 75th anniversary of Alfred Wainwright’s Pennine Journey on Saturday.
Author David Pitt will lead a 4.5-mile walk, leaving Settle Railway Station at 10.30am and covering a short section of the 247-mile route which runs from Settle to Hadrian’s Wall.
In the afternoon, David and his wife, Heather, will give a fascinating insight into their 22-year involvement with Wainwright’s Pennine Journey, describe the role of the Pennine Journey’s Supporters Club and give feedback on the society’s first ever sponsored walk on Saturday.
The talk will take place in St John’s Hall, Settle, at 2.15pm and admission is £3 for non-members and free for members.
