This is a new edition of the classic photographic book containing the walk A. Wainwright devised in 1973, covering rights of way and areas of open access between the Irish Sea and the North Sea. The route starts at St Bees Head and finishes at Robin Hood Bay, passing through three National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors, all areas of outstanding beauty. Providing a wide and varied range of scenery with changing landscapes over a distance of 190 miles, it is one of the most challenging of long-distance walks.
The text has been updated to take account of minor changes in the terrain and the result is not merely the most beautiful but also the most authoritative and useful book on the much loved Coast to Coast walk.
For this new edition, many of the photographs have been retaken by the legendary lakeland photographer, Derry Brabbs. The result is the transformation of an already fine book into something spectacular.
With sumptuous, mouth-watering new photographs by legendary Lakeland photographer Derry Brabbs and a new up-dated text to take into account the changes in the terrain, this is surely the most beautiful and authoritative book on the much loved walk to be published. - Grange Now!
Those not ready for the challenge can enjoy views of Haweswater, the Howitzer on Helm Cragg, Striding Edge, Hellvellyn and many other landmarks without leaving their armchairs. - Cumbria Life
This revised one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about Wainwright's classic 300km UK walk comes complete with diagrams and an alluring array of images. - Wanderlust
This large coffee-table book will appeal equally to those who have no intention of walking across our wild and beautiful landscape, but who love the countryside and can enjoy the remarkable views captured by a gifted photographer - from the comfort of their own armchairs. Derry has matched many of his shots with the sketches of the same view by A.W. and it's amazing how accurate Wainwright's drawings were, making us even more appreciative of the genius he certainly was. - Keswick Reminder
