Tom Stephenson addressing a crowd. Alongside Mr Stephenson is Lord Strang and the Minister of Land and Natural Resources, Mr F.T. Willey. Mr Stephenson had first thought of the idea for a long distance walk across the Pennines in 1935. The Pennine Way finally opened on the 24th April 1965, some 30 years later. Mr Wilf Proctor, Head Warden of the West Riding section of the Yorkshire Dales National Park identifies that this was a gathering to celebrate the creation of Public Rights of Way along the entire length of the Pennine Way. Mr Proctor remembers that amongst the photographs taken that day was Tom Stephenson being interviewed by a cub reporter from the Manchester Guardian, one Bernard Ingham who later went on to become the Press Secretary for Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
We use a high resolution 50 mega pixel Canon camera, mounted on a Guardian stand, which allows us to capture A0 plans comfortably without losing any clarity or definition. Plans larger than A0 are digitally stitched using Adobe Photoshop by experienced reprographic staff. Images are captured at a minimum resolution of 300dpi as TIFFS using Phase One capture software.
Paper copies at A4 and A3 size are printed on 120gsm high quality matt paper using good quality printing ink.
Paper copies larger than A3 (A2 up to A0) are printed on 170gsm high quality matt coated paper, using UV inks which do not fade or lose colour over time.
Photographs are printed on 300gsm satin and gloss paper.
