Great Walks of the World

There are so many Great Walks of the World that it would be virtually impossible to tackle them all in one’s lifetime. One spring day, #WynterseaProductions  and crew set off one day on their first great walk. They began with Alfred Wainwright’s most popular walk – the Coast to Coast Walk – often referred to as the C 2 C – a 192-mile long-distance footpath, across the north of England.  #AlfredWainwright  was a British fell-walker, a guidebook author and illustrator. The first half of the walk crosses through the Lake District, taking in great views from Haystacks of the Innominate Tarn where, at Wainwright’s last request, his ashes had been scattered.  Before reaching the half way point the walker will cross over the rolling hills of the Eden Valley before entering the Yorkshire Moors

…ahhh the moors.

There is much to be said about accomplishing such a walk – completing the entire journey, on foot and having entered Robin Hood’s Bay, where the streets were quiet, apart from the mournful cry of the gulls and the sea lapping the rocky shores. No welcoming party there to congratulate us on our success, but none was needed, for we knew in our hearts what we had done. We had walked the north of England on Wainwright’s popular #CoasttoCoastWalk – from St Bees, on the Irish Sea, to Robin Hood’s Bay, on the North Sea.
