I split this walk into sections. The Mary Towneley Loop passes very close to the family home, so I had a three day walk while visiting back in 2013, leaving two linear sections, north and south.

During an extended visit, between the summer job and another trip to New Zealand, I headed to Kirby Stephen to walk the northern section southwards, then after a few days rest, made my way to Stoney Middleton to walk the southern section northwards.

I'm not convinced about this path being included as a National Trail. It's much more suited to cyclists, with long stretches on roads or disused railways. I'd even feel pity for any horses that are ridden along the entire route. There are nice sections, and I have a soft spot for The Pennines but I won't be recommending this bridleway for walkers, unless you're attempting to complete all the trails on the register.
