Coast to Coast Walk
The Coast to Coast Walk is a 182-mile unofficial and mostly unsignposted long-distance footpath in Northern England. There are many different routes to take - one of the most popular was devised by Alfred Wainwright. It passes through three contrasting national parks: The Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park.
The C2C can usually be walked in approximately 2 - 3 weeks and either completed as one walk or as a series of stages over a period of time.
The example itinerary below is one of a number of permutations, challenging and stretching on a number of days, with estimated distance being nearer 200 miles in total.
Wainwright recommends that walkers dip their booted feet in the Irish Sea at St Bees and, at the end of the walk, in the North Sea at Robin Hood's Bay.
