Edale & The Pennine Way

Edale village nestles under Kinder Scout and is the start of The Pennine Way, the first and the longest public footpath in England opened in 1965.

In 1894, the Manchester to Sheffield railway was built with the line running through Edale and linking all the villages along the line.  Today, this is still a popular way for walkers to come to Edale from far and wide.

The National Trust own much of the moorland including most of Kinder Scout.  They have also recently taken over the running of The Penny Pot cafe next to the station…..a very popular starting and finishing point!

The newly opened Edale Visitor Centre can be found at Field Head, the Moorland Centre has a wealth of local information and is well worth a visit.
