Coast To Coast

Beautifully simple, beautifully defined and providing a complete spectrum of northern England, Wainwright`s Coast to Coast Walk is 190 miles that have become one of the classic long-distance challenges of the British Isles - a challenge that now faces Julia Bradbury. Having completed his Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells, Alfred Wainwright became obsessed with finding the perfect route across the north of England, from the Irish to the North Sea. Following in his footsteps, with his Coast to Coast book as her guide, Julia sets out from the cliffs at St. Bees in Cumbria, crossing moorland, mountains and national parks to reach her destination - the beach at Robin Hood`s Bay in North Yorkshire.

In the 1960s thousands of railways across the country were closed. Many of these old branch lines, and the spectacular scenery they pass through, are now treasured by ramblers. Julia follows these old tracks, overgrown cuttings and ancient viaducts of Britain`s lost rail empire, as well as visiting the disused lines across England, Scotland and Wales, through stunning landscapes, urban backstreets, with each contrasting walk having a unique story to tell.Featuring The Monsal Trail, The Mawddach Trail, Cornwall`s Mineral Tramways, The Strathspey Railway, The Rodwell Trail & Portland, and Callender to Loch Tay, the series provides hours of beautiful walks steeped in history and offers a fascinating and in-depth insight into industrial Britain.
