Sheep aside, if I find a sufficienty rotten animal am I allowed to take its horns/antlers/skull as a trophy of my walk? or is there a law which I am not aware of regarding carcasses (skeletons in particular). This seems a flippant question but would like to know anyway.

I doubt if the farmer would object, and having a sheeps skull on the coffee table would be a nice alternative to walking round in a tacky Coast To Coast T shirt all the time.

Just another thing too. How many calories can I expect to burn if I'm walking an average of say 20 miles a day with a backpack of 30Lbs? I dont want to run myself into the ground if I can help it. Once again thank you for everyone's advice and help!

It would depend on how much you weigh as well.

Dear All,

Thanks for your advice so far i'll be starting my journey on the 29th of May and after quite a bit of training feel confident I can do it in 14-16 days. I'll be starting at Kirk Yetholm instead of Edale (as it's closer to my house at the end).

I do have to state that I am absolutely 'having kittens' but looking forward to the challenge, though I'm a bit dissappointed with how much I've raised so far (hoping it'll pick up when I actually doing it) I will write up my journey when I get back.

Once again, Thanks for your help and advice everyone,

kind regards,

Nightowl.

i suppose loads have said/asked this.... but why cant walkers of the Pennine way just Camp on the moors?

i am doing the walk in 6 weeks time, this coincides with the 6 week holidays as my 15 year old son wants to come with me.

we was thinking of setting up camp, where we are...so to speak, pack up and leave early (taking any mess with us btw)

is there a law against this.... obviously cheaper and easier too, as we dont have to look for campsites each day smile

Byelaws and regulations by Nat Trust and Nat Parks abound.

I've been told that on Kinder Scout the wardens do evening patrols to send campers back down.

Wild camping is OK if people do as you suggest - pitch late, depart early, leave no mess.

But if you ask, the official answer is "no" in England.

Hi RedDevil,
I discreetly camped at times, pitched late, left early, no mess, no problems. However, I found that logistically (access to food) it was often more convenient to make for a location that had a campground or YHA facility by the end of day, also some areas of the moors where I would have pitched, I found were too 'boggy' and would have resulted in tent floor seepage.
Good luck with the walk, great that you can do it with your son!
Geo.

Get a dark green tent, put it up at dusk, leave early the next day and leave no mess and you will be fine!
