South Pennines set for festival
Bookmark and Share
Those putting on walking boots, cycle gear or a riding hat may have much to enjoy at the upcoming South Pennines Walk and Ride Festival, details of which have been revealed.

Beginning on September 11th, events include walks along the Pennine Way, the Bronte Way and around Ilkley Moor.

People who prefer to get around with pedal power may wish to take on the Bronte Big K Mountain Bike Challenge for charity, while horse riders can discover the routes around Saddleworth and the Pennine Bridleway.

Although some activities are urban in theme - such as the Medlock Valley walk through from east Manchester to Castlefield in the heart of the city - the main focus is on the countryside made famous by the Brontes and Last of the Summer Wine.

It is one of the parts of the mountain chain not included in a national park, with another being the North Pennines area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

However, this latter region has been the subject of an enquiry by Natural England this year into its possible inclusion in an extension of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
