Thanks for the pointers.

Looks like I have 2 options.

1) Walk from edale to somewhere like Marsden. Making a long first day. Then a shorter second day.

2) Walk from edale to crowden and have a shorter first day but longer second.

Originally I dismissed option 2 thinking I need to make more progress on day 1. However I remember it as being quite tough anyhow. Does anyone think it makes sense to do it this way?

I dont know what your time schedule is overall but found it easier to make up distance later in the walk rather than earlier on. For instance, I walked from Hardraw to Baldersdale YH in one day and it is probably the majority of people who walk from Byrness to Kirk Yetholm in one day.

Edale to Crowden is roughish terrain and probably enough for most people on day 1. For me, if I do a really long distance one day, I am probably knackered for the next and the distance I cover is limited, so overall I am probably not doing much more mileage than if I had walked two moderate days.

Most times I have stopped at Crowden on the first day but once I carried on to Globe Farm.The next day I reached Hebden.Previously when stopping at Crowden on the first day I got no further than Whitehouse on the second day.

It took about 12 hours to do the 26 miles from Edale to Globe Farm but my legs weren't too bad the next day and the terrain is far easier from Standedge.Walk from Whitehouse to Heden is a stroll and the last two miles are downhill.Walking from Crowden to Hebden wouldn't leave much in reserve for day three which is quite tough.

As Globe Farm has now shut,Suggest you try Forest Farm Guest House.Approx 0.75m off Pennine Way about 0.75m before Standedge.
You will then be close enough to hit the high spots of Marsden in the evening!
Snoopys van is open 7 days a week (though may shut Christmas Day)serving hot drinks (in pot mugs!) and monster sandwiches all at ludicrously low prices.On weekdays you will also find a snackbar at Windy Hill (just before M62)But this cannot be relied on at weekends.

Ok, Will try Forest Farm Guest house. Make for a long first day though.

Hoping to complete in about 13 days. planning to walk to lothersdale on day 3. I have walked the bit from edale to bowes once before fut a while ago. I can't remember the bit after Hebden Bridge being that hard.

Andy.

There is a steep ascent up from Hebden Bridge with a number of ups and downs in river valleys for several miles. I did it at the end of the day and it was particularly tedious. Probably what you dont want at the beginning of a day either.

I plan to stay at Badger fields farm at the end of day 2, which is just after Hebden Bridge. Hence getting that steep bit out of the way on the end of the previous day. I am actually wondering if I have any possibility of pushing on beyond Lothersale from Badger Fields Farm. What do you think.

Romur and Latic, thanks for the useful info on 'Snoopy's' - lets hope it's worth their while to stand regular! Good luck Andy.

The next habitation after Lothersdale is Thornton in Craven,about five miles from Lothersdale.Its quite a slog from Hebden to Lothersdale and I feel this will be more than enough considering you are doing the Edale-Hebden section in two days.
