Friday 24th June – Ennerdale Bridge to St. Bees Today I shall mostly be trying not to embarrass myself by dancing to “Walk On Water” by Otis Taylor. The job’s done, holiday complete, I’ve tramped from one coast of England to the other; about 200 miles and 40,000 feet of...

Coast to Coast 2011: Day Seven

Saturday 18th June – Keld to Kirkby Stephen Today I shall mostly be wearing my old school uniform in tribute to “Evil Walks” by AC/DC. I think it was the great Sir Isaac Newton who suggested that for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction (feel free to correct...

Friday 17th June – Reeth to Keld Today I shall mostly be headbanging whilst walking to “Walk On” by Deep Purple. Note: Apologies, but there are no photos for the next two days – for some unknown reason the bloody camera hasn’t been writing them to the memory card. The...
