Wainwright's Coast to Coast

At the beginning of 2006 four friends decided that having completed all the Wainwrights, the next logical step would be to do the Coast to Coast walk from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay in Yorkshire. After investigating all the possibilities we organised our own accommodation and booked a company to transport luggage from one B & B to the next. Below are links to pages which give an account of our experiences, the views and memories along the the way. For some people this will bring back recollections of their own travels along the route, while others may be inspired to complete the walk themselves.

Dinner at the Manor House was a fitting start the evening before we commenced our walk


Phil captured a lovely sunset with the Isle of Man just visible
