Third edition of Cicerone’s guide to the Coast to Coast walk popularised by Wainwright. The walk across northern England from St Bees Head in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay on Yorkshire’s east coast is now one of the most popular long-distance walks in Britain. At 178 miles (300km) long, the trail can be easily walked within a two-week holiday period. The route is based on permitted rights of way and minimises the amount of road walking. The guide includes an accommodation listing.

The guide is in three sections. The first gives the route description, from west to east, annotated as appropriate with notes of geological, historical, industrial, sociological
and natural history interest. The second section gives the route description only in an east to west direction, cross-referenced to the points of interest. The final section
comprises a description of variant routes and lists useful addresses.
