About the book
Growing up in the 1960s in a small mining village in Derbyshire, trips to the countryside - the great outdoors - were a huge part of Dave Marriott's life. Leaving the village was an adventure in itself but the school trip that had the biggest effect on him was the day they visited Edale in the Derbyshire Peak District.
As the noisy party of schoolchildren set off walking through the village and past the Nag's Head pub, Dave spotted a sign that read "Pennine Way". Mesmerised by the beauty of the scenery, he vowed to return and explore this beautiful part of the country one day. And indeed he did, albeit some forty-two years later.
"Where Shall We Walk Today?" is the story of how Dave's dream came true when he and his wife Diane walked all 267 miles of The Pennine Way during three weeks one summer. Join Dave and Diane as they scramble, stumble and stroll their way from Derbyshire to Scotland. Walking boots required; blisters guaranteed!
