The Pennines are the backbone of hills that run down the spine of Britain.

The rolling hills hide many fascinating mines, potholes and caves. 300 million years ago this land was at the bottom of a sea lagoon, forming the limestone rock that make this area so interesting.

There are hidden valleys. Fantastic waterfalls. Sculpted rocks. Abandoned Castles.

People have lived and defended the area for millenia, there are some fine stone circles dating back to the bronze age. The Eden Valley is the historical main route north, and used by our conquerers the Romans and the Normans. They had to defend their road from the British people, and have left their mark to this day.

The Pennines are unusual. The Pennines are lonely. The Pennines are peaceful. This is their beauty.
