Welcome to our new Trail Reporter!

19th December 2016

We are delighted to welcome Dave Greenwood as the new Trail Reporter for the Pennine Way. Dave will be writing under the by-line ‘Pennine Days’, producing articles of interest and information about the trail and the landscape and places through which it passes.

Dave was previously the Trail Reporter for the Cleveland Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Way.  A recent relocation sees him living now in West Yorkshire where he has good access to the Pennine Way.

Dave says "I have the Pennine Way to thank for introducing me to just how amazing our National Trails are. It is over 20 years since I completed my first Pennine Way adventure and I have lived under its powerful spell ever-since. I’m really excited to have been given a chance to write about and report on this wonderful trail”.

“I have a great enthusiasm for the countryside, and enjoy days out rambling and roaming. I love to discover and explore, and I am fascinated by the secrets and surprises to be found in the landscape. I believe that walking is an education, that it is an infallible cure for low spirits and the ‘blues’, and teaches you what a deal of kindliness and good humour there is in the world”.

“I hope those who read ‘Pennine Days’ will enjoy my discoveries, and will want to get out and start exploring the Pennine Way for themselves“. 

“I will always be pleased to receive reader’s feedback and to share their experiences of the trail with those who will be following in their footsteps."

So look out for our "Pennine Days" written by our very own Trail Reporter!
