Description
  • Please use the map to follow this section of the Trail.
  • The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is the first long distance multi-user trail in the UK.  Stretching the breadth of northern England, from the Irish Sea to the North Sea, it covers 215 miles (346 kilometres).  
  • In addition, there are north/south route options, between Chesterfield, Leeds and York.  These signed routes cover approximately 350 miles (560 kilometres) and run along a mixture of well-surfaced canal and railway paths, tracks and bridleways, footpaths, cycle lanes and minor roads.
  • The TPT has been designated as part of an international route for walkers, 'European Long Distance Route 8' (known as E8). The long term aim is for E8 to become a walking route from the west coast of Ireland to Istanbul.
  • The TPT forms just the UK section of E8.  You will witness an amazing range of sights and scenes as the TPT passes through the countryside, towns and cities of northern England, from old canals to historic city streets and quiet country lanes.

Further Information
Features of Interest

Q.  Who looks after the TPT? 
 
A.  The Trans Pennine Trail has been completed and signed by the 26 Local Authorities (councils) who have, with others such as North West Water and Sustrans, built the trail over the last 11 years or so.  The Local Authorities are now responsible for looking after most of the TPT in their areas, though landowners are responsible for certain sections. 
 
A.  Staff at the TPT office in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, co-ordinate the overall development and promotion of the trail, working on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council and other Local Authorities/partners.
