Route Anticlockwise Reverse

Thumbnail

Day 1: Stainborough Cricket Club to Pastures Lodge, Denaby Ings, 14.3 miles/23 km

17m ascent, 77m descent, total 14.3 miles/23 km

The first day! Following the Trans Pennine Trail east trail along rivers and through valleys in industrial South Yorkshire

If you decide to tackle the walk in the anticlockwise direction, you'll have easy flat walking for about 6 days on the Trans Pennine Trail, so you can get toned up before the hills appear. Walking is hard work, especially with a heavy pack, so you'll be glad to know the first pub is the Strafford Arms after about 120m. After a well-earned rest at the Strafford, join the Trans Pennine Trail at Gilroyd and head east through pleasant countryside, passing Worsbrough Mill Country Park and calling at the Ship Inn and Boatman's Rest at Worsbrough for further refreshments. Be careful though, the Boatman's Rest is sometimes closed at lunchtimes. Follow the signed Trans Pennine Trail east towards Wombwell, where (for me) nostalgia kicks in. The Way passes the Aldham Industrial Estate, where my former company ABI Electronics Ltd started out in a tiny unit in 1983, and fed me until I retired and sold up in 2014. After Wombwell the route passes the Old Moor nature reserve, and from this point the Trans Pennine Trail shares its route with the Dearne Way all the way to today's end at Denaby Ings. Follow the south bank of the River Dearne until you reach the bridge at Adwick, after which you cross to the north bank. Keep on the north bank all the way to the road at Denaby Ings, where there's a convenient hotel (Pastures Lodge) a short distance up the road towards Mexborough.
