The classic high-level walk from Irish Sea to North Sea Originally devised by the legendary Alfred Wainwright, the Coast-to-Coast Walk has steadily become one of Britain’s most popular long-distance walks, and it is not hard to see why. Planned to seek out the most spectacular high ground across the country, it takes you from the sea in the west to the sea in the east via three of England’s loveliest National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Its 192 miles, from the quiet Cumbrian village of St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay, are a substantial test of endurance that will take even a fit walker a fortnight to accomplish, but also a wonderfully varying walk, from sea cliffs to craggy mountains and lakes, then across rolling dales and finally heather moorland. For everyone who reaches Wainwright’s Bar at journey’s end on the North Yorkshire coast it will have been the walk of a lifetime.

A guidebook to the famous Coast to Coast walk first popularised by Alfred Wainwright. The walk from St Bees Head in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay on Yorkshire's east coast is now one of the most popular long-distance walks in Britain. At 178 miles (300km) long, the trail can be easily walked within a two-week holiday period. The route is based on permitted rights of way, minimising the amount of road walking. The guide is in three sections. The first gives the route description, from west to east, annotated with notes of geological, historical, industrial and sociological interest, together with information on natural history. The second section gives the route description only in an east to west direction, cross-referenced to the points of interest. The final section comprises a description of variant routes and lists some useful addresses.

At the end of July 2013, David Butterworth made an impulsive decision to walk the second half of the 192-mile Coast to Coast Walk across Northern England from west to east, completing a second crossing. During the seven-day adventure, he was surprised to discover how much an ease and complacency towards the Walk which runs from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay in Yorkshire, trends. Casting his mind back to an earlier era, Mr Butterworth recalls that the remarkable scenery the Walk passes through, the Lakeland fells, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, would be enjoyed much better if hikers didn't rely on support services. The book floods with detail about the freedom to enjoy some of the most stunning landscapes found anywhere in the British Isles. It richly describes the scenery and what it is like to walk this iconic route, particularly if you are carrying your bed and belongings on your back. Furnished with detail about heritage sites along the Walk, contrasted with several unusual situations, much of one's walking experience is told in this book's pages. It is an immersed account of one man's journeys and adventures walking this fascinating and timeless trail.
