About this book

It is now nearly 40 years since Alfred Wainwright devised the elegant concept of a 190-mile walk across the north of England, linking the west and east coasts and covering some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. This book is a celebration of the magnificent landscapes on the walk from St. Bee's Head on the Irish Sea to Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea.

It highlights the changes in light, landscape and weather throughout the seasons which produce such a variety of different moods along the route. which passes through three of the country's most beautiful national parks (the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors) along with other less well-known but equally lovely regions, such as the Vales of Eden and Mowbray. The Coast to Coast encompasses a remarkable diversity of geology and land use which is reflected in its ever-changing character.

By hours of planning and repeatedly returning to the route throughout the year, landscape photographer Karen Frenkel has captured its different moods and those transient moments when light and landscape combine to produce this beautiful and unusual set of images. Together with informative captions of both her experiences and information about the area, it is a beautiful record for the thousands of people who walk this route, but do not have the time or weather to record it in such detail for themselves.
