    TPT Coast to Coast

    The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) crosses northern England from the Mersey to the Humber running through the cities of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and Hull. It is a purpose-built route for walkers and cyclists with many miles available for horse riding and wheelchair access, wherever possible.

    Mostly off-road, the TPT uses existing rights of way, riverbank paths, canal towpaths and disused railway lines. With its robust surfaces and generally gentle gradients, it is suitable for people of all ages and capabilities.

    Call 01226 772574 or visit www.transpenninetrail.org.uk to order our maps and guide and discover more about this national route. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

    The Trail offers a wide contrast of landscape from deep rural areas to river estuaries and towns and cities where former industrial sites have become woodlands and nature reserves.

    Twenty seven local authorities are partners in the project and each authority is responsible for the management of the trail in its own area. The TPT is coordinated by a project officer based in Barnsley.

    If you would like to venture further afield on the TPT or maybe even do the full coast to coast, route maps and an accommodation guide are available from the TPT head office.
