Alison and I walked the Pennine Way in the UK over September this year. Found the walking spectacular but hard due to the bog and lack of maintenance. Here are some of the images and a link to our blog:

Only the one full face plant, fortunately onto sphagnum not mud. Knee deep several times

Are the bikes actually permitted up there? 'Cause it seems a totally inappropriate place for them.

It seems so. Some sections had no bikes signs, but certainly no policing. One area had a full on MTB rogaining competion right alongside a motocross event. That was mostly on farm track but still in National Park. Things are a bit different too with attitudes to dogs. They are everywhere, on and off lead, and in the pubs.

probably back to Tas in Feb to catch up on some we've missed over the years: Probably 3 capes, Freycinet and Frenchmans
