About The Pennine Trails

The South Pennines are a combination of unique landscape & industrial heritage. The area has long been a favoured resort for walkers & historians.

Pennine Horizons e-Trails are different from traditional walking guides - they give you the opportunity to download images and spoken descriptions of some of the highlights of the walk as well as having an accompanying printed guide.

The e-Trails Mobile Apps, contain a map, walk directions, audio commentaries & historical photographs which can be downloaded to a phone or tablet. They include stories of local events & people as well as information about the awe-inspiring ecology & outstanding industrial and political heritage of the area.

Printed Route Guides are also available to support the App or allow you to still enjoy the e-Trail if you don’t have a mobile phone or tablet - with the written script available to download from the website.

From time to time we offer guided walks - sometimes shortened versions - of the e-Trails click here to see what is on offer soon.
