A Pennine Journey: five will each receive a copy

A Pennine Journey: five will each receive a copy

Five lucky grough readers have won their own copy of the new guide to the route taken by one of the best known outdoor writers in his first long-distance foray.

A Pennine Journey is a companion guide to the original account of Alfred Wainwright’s trip from Settle to Hadrian’s Wall and back.

The pocket guide, published by Frances Lincoln, is the result of collaboration between members of the Wainwright Society and is edited by David Pitt. It charts a 398km (247-mile) route from the town on the southern fringe of the Yorkshire Dales national park, up the Pennines to the Roman wall and returning down the opposite edge of the mountain chain.

Five winners will each receive a copy of the book, which retails at £13.99. They correctly chose 1938 as the answer to our question: in which year did Wainwright complete his solitary trip that was the inspiration for A Pennine Journey?

They are: Mark Argent of Nottingham; Peer Lawther of Leeds; Darrin Smith of Newcastle upon Tyne; Fiona Tomlinson of Leeds; and Dawn Whitaker of Bury St Edmunds.

The winners were chosen at random from all those who submitted a correct answer.
