England's most popular walk runs for 184 miles (296 km) across the north of England from St Bees on the Irish Sea to Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea. It passes through three National Parks - the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors - with fine scenery, welcoming pubs and plenty of accommodation. Devised by the legendary Wainwright, the Coast to Coast attracts walkers worldwide.
The new edition is richly illustrated with 150 photographs, many by professional landscape photographer Karen Frenkel. There are 25 pages of colourful new mapping (scale 1:55,000) with cumulative distances, a 25-metre contour interval and points of interest marked. Each section has its own altitude profile, with details of where refreshments are available. Much detail has been added to route descriptions, in many places clarified by extra photographs. Major route options have been added and mapped, and many updates made. The format is lightweight, robust and rainproof.
