    You should have a great trip lots of lovely scenery, we live near to Hebden Bridge so know the bottom bit well. We also know the top bit and have had lots of exceptional meals at lovely Borders pub at Kirk Yetholm, still nice but sadly IMO not as good as it used to be since it changed hands. Take a look around the Northumberland coast when you get there if you have the time. Have a great trip. Hope the sun shines for you.

    We will go to the THS between Beadnell and Seahouses when we get to the top. These are already stamping grounds for us. As well as going there on our UK round the coast trip I have been involved with lighthouse work on the Inner Farne, Longstone and Coquet, we have wild camped at Bamburgh (twice) and done campsite assessments for Alan Rogers at Budle Seahouses and others in that area.

    There is a great walk from Beadnell along the coast to the National Trust village of Low Newton and the Ship Inn.(y)

    Thanks Joyce and Brian but our 16 y/o dog can only walk about quarter of a mile now and that v slowly.

    OK Ive started a blog on my website http://franksblog.webnode.com/blog/pennine-way/ Its not a traditional blog but will be added to and polished up. So far it covers the planning.
