There is now a great deal of interest in our West Pennine Way, created by our village walking Group and opened in September 2016. Free leaflets are available from containers outside Greenmount Old School or from our website www.westpennineway.org where there are many other routes to follow together with a gallery of photographs.

THE SUNNYWOOD PROJECT
The Sunnywood Project is organising an Endurance Weekend on the West Pennine Way 5th and 6th June 2021.
Following is taken from their website:
Take on the whole of the brutal, yet beautiful, West Pennine Way over two days with this fully supported and guided endurance challenge.
Like all of our events, this is NOT a race: this event is simply about completing the distance with the camaraderie of other like-minded people around you – there should be no desire to ‘beat’ anyone or break any records and our friendly guides will be running / hiking the whole route with you to offer a supportive pep talk when required. However, we also won’t be offended if you do want to push on ahead without us.
