Your pictures: Pennine Way at 50

It's 50 years since the Pennine Way was first opened to the public.

The 268-mile (431km) mountain top trail traditionally runs south to north beginning at Edale in the Peak District, and passes through the Yorkshire Dales, Cumbria and Northumberland.

Here are some of the views captured by people walking the trail.
