Greetings my Pennine Chums and welcome to ‘Pennine Days’ a blog about the Pennine Way National Trail, the landscape through which it passes and the lives it touches as it makes it way along the ‘backbone of England’.

My name is Dave Greenwood, I’m the Trail Reporter for the Pennine Way National Trail; http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk/pennine-way/news/welcome-our-new-trail-reporter

I also write for ‘The Gentleman Adventurers Chronicle’; https://thegentlemenadventurerschronicle.wordpress.com/, where I have great fun writing as a whole cast of different characters about outdoors related matters.

I was previously the Trail Reporter for the Cleveland Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Way.

I have the Pennine Way to thank for introducing me to just how amazing our National Trails are. It is over 20 years since I completed my first Pennine Way adventure, and I have lived under its powerful spell ever-since.

I hope those who read ‘Pennine Days’ will enjoy my discoveries, and get out and start exploring the Pennine Way for themselves.
