The Pennine Bridleway, when complete, will run for some 250 miles (560km), and will be Britain's first purpose-built long-distance bridleway. This book covers the southernmost section of the Bridleway, the first to be opened. Starting in the heart of the Peak District, it runs north to the moors of the south Pennines, where it splits to form the 47-mile (75km) Mary Towneley Loop.

Although it has been designed and built specifically to serve the needs of horse-riders and cyclists, it is expected that the route will also be widely used by many walkers, as it offers a spectacular trail through some of the finest countryside in the north-west of England while being easily accessible from the region's populous towns and cities, such as Sheffield, Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Huddersfield and Leeds. This book, published in association with the Countryside Agency, is the complete guide to this section of the Bridleway. It contains: a detailed description of the entire route, split into convenient sections; 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps for each section marked with points of special interest; colour photographs and features on local history, landscape, wildlife, geology and land use; details of facilities for horse-riders and cyclists; and information on travel, accommodation and facilities such as Tourist Information Centres and Youth Hostels, and contact details for other useful organizations.
