North Pennines AONB, Visitor & Tourism Guide

Photo © Owner

The Pennines are a range of hills running up the centre of the north of England, sometimes referred to as ‘the backbone of England’.

The North Pennines AONB, as the name suggests, is the northern part of this range of hills. To its south is the Yorkshire Dales National Park and to its north the Tyne Valley. The AONB straddles the counties of Northumberland, Cumbria, County Durham and North Yorkshire.
