The Coast To Coast Walk, originally devised by the legendary Alfred Wainwright, has become one of Britain's most popular long-distance routes. It starts at St Bees on the Cumbrian Coast and runs for 192 miles (307km) to Robin Hoods Bay on the North Sea, passing through three of Britain's loveliest National Parks. - The Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors.
