Walk England Coast to Coast – a new approach to a classic adventure

Coast to Coast cover of package jpegThis classic route, pioneered by Alfred Wainwright, crosses northern England from – you guessed it – coast to coast. There are other books available – so what makes this one different?

Here’s what the author and researcher of this new take on a favourite challenge, has to say:-

“On a fortnight’s adventure with my mates Keith and Nigel from St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay (July 2012) I talked to loads of C2Cers subtly asking what would make the route better. What everyone wanted was accurate navigation along the route, especially if it included ‘real time’ mapping.

There are loads of guide books about the Coast to Coast so rather than adding another book I have produced what every C2Cer wants:-
A system of accurate navigation for the whole route using ‘real time’ mapping on a Garmin gps or Viewranger phone app.

The result is a Stage by Stage guide, with alternatives, that gives you a real time mapping gps unit showing exactly where you are on the route along with the walking instructions that will ensure that you stay on the correct route.

On your Garmin, or Viewranger app, you will be on the right track every step of the way for all of the 198.5 miles (320km) from St Bees until you arrive at The Bay Hotel in Robin Hood’s Bay; where you will find the Wainright Bar with its C2C ‘sign in’ book.” David Brawn, author/researcher

    With the long days and light nights, this would be the perfect time to rise to this challenge. You can always try a day or two as a ‘taster’.
