About this book
Acclaimed poet Armitage chronicles his attempt to walk the Pennine Way without a penny in his pocket. Armitage takes on the 256 mile walk, approaching it from north to south, towards the Yorkshire village of Marsden where he was born.
In summer 2010, the author decided to walk the Pennine Way. The challenging 256-mile route is usually approached from south to north, from Edale in the Peak District to Kirk Yetholm, the other side of the Scottish border. He resolved to tackle it the other way round. This title describes this extraordinary, yet ordinary, journey.
