The Old Nags Head Inn in the heart of the village of Edale is famous among walkers and outdoor enthusiasts the country over. The Inn forms the start of the Pennine Way, the 270 mile long-distance walking route along the backbone of Northern England, finishing in Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders.

The ‘Nags’ dates back to 1577, and was once a farmhouse that served beer to passing packhorse drivers. When the Beer Barrel Challenge teams arrive, exhausted, after their Kinder crossing, they are cheered in by locals and visitors who go on to enjoy a day of entertainment held at this most popular of pubs.
