|Coast to Coast Trekking England The Wainwright Way - Part 1
Lowest new price: $17.99
List price: $17.99
Alfred Wainwright, in 1973, devised a walk across the North of England whereby the trekker could travel the entire width, from St Bees, in the west, to Robin Hood's Bay, on the North Sea, and across three National Parks. This section of the walk, Part 1, encompasses the western half, from St Bees to Kirkby Stephen, taking in the Lake District and the Eden Valley. The great walk is begun by climbing up St Bees Head, a mirror image of Robin Hood's Bay on the opposite coast. This quintessential English walking excursion leads the trekker into the very heart of the Lake District where the scenery is at its most rugged. Then suddenly the Lake District National Park is behind and the landscape of the Eden Valley offers a softer look with no great climbs or descents, with glimpses of the moors in the distance.
Wainwright loved the lake country and his deep-felt affection is so patently contagious that he has drawn countless other walkers, keen to savour the unique landscape and to follow in his footsteps; alongside a lake, over a meadow and atop a mountain.
Wainwright once said, "The hills are eternal. Always there will be a lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits."
