My wife and I hiked the coast-to-coast last year and had a wonderful time. It was rich in history (Shap Abbey, Richmond Castle, Eastby Abbey, deserted lead mines in Swaledale, the Nine Standards, etc.) but the best part was meeting all the fellow hikers (I guess the English call them walkers) as well as friendly B&B owners. This year we did part of the Southeast coast (Plymouth to Poole) and that was also a great experience.
Hope you have a great trip!

Randall, I was so knackered by the time I got to Shap, that I only glanced in the general direction of the Abbey, sadly. In my defence it was covered in scaffolding. But it's been great; wet but great. And I've always loved Swaledale' so looking forward to finishing the job next year!


thank you for this.
