The much-loved fellwalker Alfred Wainwright created one of the truly great walking challenges - to walk across the whole of England. The Coast to Coast route was AW's last great venture and has become his greatest legacy to long distance walkers - a beautifully simple proposition, linking three national parks that lie between the Irish and the North Sea - The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and The North Yorks Moors National Parks. Accompanying the BBC television series, this book follows Julia Bradbury as she re-traces Wainwright's grand traverse. The book collects together all six stages of the walk from the TV series, with Julia's commentary on her experience of the walk accompanied by stills, evocative landscape photography, and AW's celebrated line drawings. Julia crosses this changing landscape in sun, wind and rain, learns something of its history and meets the people that make up almost 200 miles of northern England's most glorious countryside.

Review:

'what really makes [this book] is Julia's amusing and entertaining personal commentary.' Outdoor Photography 'not only a reflective book but should give anyone thinking of completing the traverse an encouraging push to get out there.' Westmorland Gazette 'light and informal narrative account of her walk should delight fans of both AW and JB. It's lavishly presented on high quality paper and richly illustrated.' Lakeland Walker 'a beautifully presented book with many striking colour photos' The Keswick Reminder
