About this book

This challenging walk of 184 miles (296 km) crosses the north of England from St Bees on the Irish Sea to Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea.

Devised by the legendary Wainwright, the Coast to Coast is England's most popular walk. Coast to Coast is richly illustrated with 115 photographs, 28 pages of maps (scale 1:50,000) and 16 altitude profiles. The format is lightweight, robust and waterproof.
