I've just been told that as from Monday i'm going for a long walk. Coast to Coast. From St. Bees on the Irish Sea coast in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay on the North Sea coast in Yorkshire. 191 miles across Northern England crossing three National Parks - Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. I'm pretty sure i'm gonna love it, but, 191 miles !!!! Give me a break, knowing his map reading skills 250 miles is more like it. Infact if we're not back in three weeks call for International Rescue !!!! But the good news is i'm blogging as i go so keep watching. Here's the route -

Ennerdale Bridge 14 miles

Rosthwaie 28.5 miles

Grasmere 38 miles

Patterdale (Glenridding) 48 miles

Shap 64 miles
