Established by the immortal Alfred Wainwright, the Coast to Coast Walk is one of the classic British walks. It traverses the North of England from the Irish Sea at St Bees to the North Sea at Robin Hoods Bay, passing through some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in the country: the mountains and lakes of the Lake District, the majestic valleys of the Yorkshire Dales, the heather moorland of the North York Moors, and, by way of contrast, dramatic coastal scenery at the start and finish.
