Encyclopedia > Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail is a long distance path in England, running largely along disused railway lines and canal towpaths, entirely on surface paths and only gentle gradients. As such, it is a very easy trail, and is suitable for cyclists, pushchairs and wheelchair users.

The trail starts at Southport, then heads south through the suburbs of Liverpool, through Widnes, Warrington, Stockport and Hadfield. It then crosses the Peak District, heading up the Longdendale valley, then down through Dunford Bridge and Penistone, Doncaster, Selby, Hessle, Hull and Hornsea.

One branch leads to Sheffield, the Rother Valley Country Park and Chesterfield, another to Wakefield and Leeds, and a third from Selby to York.

The cross-continent European walking route E8 uses a stretch of the trail from Hull to near the Welsh border to cross England.
