The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is a route for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders linking the North Sea and the Irish Sea, from Hornsea to Southport. The route crosses the Pennines and along canal towpaths, disused railway lines and through visiting some wonderful villages along the route. The Trail from coast-to-coast between Southport and Hornsea is 215 miles (346 km) long. With the north-south route connecting Leeds and Chesterfield, a spur to York and a spur to Kirkburton there are approximately 370 miles (595 km) of route to explore.
