The classic high-level walk from Irish Sea to North Sea Originally devised by the legendary Alfred Wainwright, the Coast-to-Coast Walk has steadily become one of Britain’s most popular long-distance walks, and it is not hard to see why. Planned to seek out the most spectacular high ground across the country, it takes you from the sea in the west to the sea in the east via three of England’s loveliest National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Its 192 miles, from the quiet Cumbrian village of St Bees to Robin Hood’s Bay, are a substantial test of endurance that will take even a fit walker a fortnight to accomplish, but also a wonderfully varying walk, from sea cliffs to craggy mountains and lakes, then across rolling dales and finally heather moorland. For everyone who reaches Wainwright’s Bar at journey’s end on the North Yorkshire coast it will have been the walk of a lifetime.

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.
