A A Coast to Coast Walk Summary

A A Coast to Coast Walk by Alfred Wainwright

This is the first fully revised and updated edition of A. Wainwright's pocket-sized guide to the Coast to Coast Walk which he devised in the early 1970s. Over the years this 190-mile walk - from St Bees Head on the Irish Sea by way of the Lake District, the Pennines, Swaledale and the North York Moors, ending at Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea - has become one of the best-loved long-distance routes in the world. It has prompted countless enthusiasts to lace up their walking boots and follow Wainwright's example, and inspired a TV series too. This brand new edition of the Pictorial Guide contains Wainwright's hand-drawn route maps and his inimitable commentary, completely revised where necessary by Chris Jesty. The route is picked out in red for greater visibility on the page, and every step of the walk has been checked and updated.

A A Coast to Coast Walk Reviews

'No walker should be without a little bit of Wainwright while they're doing the walk. The book is a work of art.' Lancashire Magazine

About Alfred Wainwright

ALFRED WAINWRIGHT was born in Blackburn in 1907. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life-long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 he began to devote every spare moment he had to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial Guides. He described these as his 'love letters' to the Lakeland Fells. Wainwright died in 1991 at the age of 84. CHRIS JESTY trained as a cartographer with the Ordnance Survey. He devised Scafell Pike Panorama, a guide to the view from the highest mountain in England, for which Wainwright provided illustrations. When Wainwright's health deteriorated, Chris helped him with the maps for two of his large-format books. Shortly before he died, Wainwright said that if ever the Pictorial Guides were to be revised, Chris Jesty should be given the job. He lives in Kendal.
