Further Information

South Pennines

The South Pennines stretch from the northern boundary of the Peak District to the southern boundary of the Yorkshire Dales. Consisting of high rolling moorland, intersected by deep valleys, there is nowhere in this region that exceeds 2000 feet. The moors and valleys are where the old rivals, Lancashire and Yorkshire meet and where too the rival industries of cotton and wool.
