'Originally conceived ... in 1985 to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Ramblers Association. In it's original state it was a one day challenge walk over a 50km route.

It is, however, worth noting that the Hyndburn Group has also done the walk over both two and three days on various occasions.' ALERT Link replaced with one to the LDWA.
