England Coast to Coast Hike

see larger map >>

July 8 to 15, 2022

Hike across England with Linda Paulson, a comparative literature scholar, and trail expert Peter Watson, starting in the lovely Lake District on the coast of the Irish Sea and ending at Robin Hood’s Bay on the edge of the North Sea.

Following Wainwright. Enjoy daily hikes across heather-carpeted moors and up stark, mountainous fells as we follow six sections that the great author Alfred Wainwright mapped out in 1971 as an unofficial long-distance trek across England. Memorable landscapes. Hike amid the austere, haunting beauty of three of northern England’s national parks: the Lake District; the Yorkshire Dales, studded with stone-built hamlets; and the North York Moors, an expansive area of open heathland and verdant river valleys.
