9780955998782: A Coast to Coast Route Guide

Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk is by far the most popular long distance trail in Britain, and one of the world's great walks. From the Irish Sea at St. Bees Head, it winds its way across northern England, 190 miles or so, to the North Sea shoreline at Robin Hood's Bay. On the way it passes through three National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. Almost everywhere the landscape is varied, full of interest and beauty. From seaside cliff tops the trail crosses high mountains and lakesides, heather moors and deep cut valleys, green rolling hills and gentle river tracks, calling at charming villages and towns along the way. It is an exhilarating adventure, and once completed is an achievement that will remain fondly in the memory for the rest of your life. With full colour large-scale strip maps of the entire route, this guide will make the practical task of route-finding easy.

Review:

Wainwright s Coast to Coast walk is without doubt one of the most popular and most-often trekked long distance trails in Britain. From the Irish Sea at St Bees Head, it winds its way to the shoreline at Robin Hood s Bay in North Yorkshire, taking in a good swathe of the Lake District National Park en route. This book describing the route is packed full of thorough and comprehensive detail from a brief history of the Coast to Coast Walk to thoroughly usable map guides. The strip maps are aligned in the general direction of travel and the route was surveyed on the ground prior to publication. The full colour large-scale strip maps of the entire route and stunning images throughout the guide will make the practical task of finding your way across England easy. The handy book also comes equipped with a weather resistant wallet - just in case you get caught out in the rain --Faye Greenwell, Westmorland Gazette

A slim, pocket-size guide to Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk which depicts the popular route via a series of large-scale colour strip maps, all very clearly set out and easy to follow. It incorporates all the recent route modifications on the classic walk from St Bees Head to Robin Hood's Bay, plus there are colour photos and supporting text (including a history of the walk) to help you find your way. --Walk - magazine of the Ramblers

If I were going to walk the Coast to Coast (which, splendid walk as it is, I'm not contemplating at present), I would take two guides with me, and one of them would be Tony and Chris Grogan's latest book: "A Coast to Coast Route Guide". I say this because it does the job. I do not think it would be possible to have a clearer guide to prevent me going astray. The guide achieves this by strip maps aligned in the general direction of travel. These maps are based on the OS Explorer maps with superfluous detail omitted and some features exaggerated for clarity. The strip maps also include alternative routes, and Wainwright's original route where it diverges from the present route. There is commentary (including brief notes on features of interest) at the side of the strip maps and many enjoyable photographs. So Tony and Chris's book would quite definately go in my map pocket. And the other book? Well, of course it would be Wainwright's original "A Coast to Coast Walk". --Keith Wadd, West Riding Rambler
