Just had our first accommodation cancellation. Alston YH is closed until 31st July.

Coronavirus and lockdown is now on the banned list  :(

Even if we have to put it off for a while we will do it some time, some how. After all we have already postponed once for 4 years.
We have camping gear if there is no other way I was just hoping to avoid carrying so much weight all that way.

Mrs R has just jokingly suggested that we can still walk the Pennine Way as we will only be exercising once a day.

Fingers crossed you get to do this before the end of summer - so many plans on hold.

But are you walking from home to get to the start?  ;D

Yesterday one scientist was saying that people should be able to go on hoilday in August provided everything goes as planned.Mid to late September would be better on the PW as the kids have gone back to school and there is a chance of the weather being a bit more settled.

Not sure I'm going to have much choice on the dates but we'll do it some time even if it means taking the tent with us. Or should I say even if it means my son carrying the tent, I used to have the heavier rucksack when he just had a packet of crisps in his so now it's payback.

Are you sure you are going the right way?  I looked the route on my wall map today and it is definitely downhill N to S.  In fact it is practically vertical.

Hi Joyce


If at all possible we will be with you on 3rd & 4th July. If not all the accommodation is open we will camp some nights on the way up so long as there are enough places for us to get supplies.


I hope you are OK and that the governments schemes can help keep you afloat.
