Back to the Wall – The story of a long ramble in the northern Pennines, from Settle to Hadrian’s Wall and back, following a route first trodden by Alfred Wainwright in 1938.

In 1938, in the shadow of possible hostilities and long before he became renowned for his ‘pictorial guides’, Alfred Wainwright decided to go for a walk. This was not just any walk: he chose to walk over 200 miles from Settle to Hadrian’s Wall and back. He wrote an account of his trek, Pennine Journey, not as a guidebook but as a commentary on the life and folk of the Dales.

In 1998, as close to the 60th anniversary as possible, A. Walker undertook the same walk and, like Wainwright, undertook the walk solo. The sense of being alone became cathartic and inspired this personal reflection. The account looks at life’s trials and tribulations through the medium of 11 days spent with his own thoughts, with no distractions to blunt the experience. The sense, from time to time, of having his back to the wall found a great medicine in following Wainwright back to the wall.
