The Coast to Coast walk is 192 miles long, the walk was devised by Alfred Wainwright, it starts from St Bees on the west coast it goes through the Lakes it mostly follows the valleys.
The Highest point being Kidsty Pike which is 780 metres high, there are higher options along the route, we go through pretty lakeland village of Grasmere.
After the stunning mountains of the Lakes we reach the beautiful Yorkshire Dales high fells and wonderful meadowland valleys, going through Swaledale and onwards to the pretty village of Reeth, the capital of Swaledale, before arriving in the market town of Richmond. Which is the largest settlement on the route, with a castle! Here we have a well earned rest with a day of leisure to enjoy.
From here we head through the Vale of York which is flat which has the longest day before arriving on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, with it’s heathered moorland. Pushing on through the village of Glaisdale and completing our journey in Robin Hoods Bay on the east coast.
