Discover Coast to Coast
Wainwright's Coast to Coast
‘Surely there cannot be a finer itinerary for a long-distance walk! … The countryside traversed is beautiful almost everywhere, yet extremely varied in character, with mountains and hills, valleys and rivers, heather moors and sea-cliffs combining in a pageant of colourful scenery.’ A Coast to Coast Walk, 1973
Wainwright’s first visit to the Lake District in 1930 took him to the summit of Orrest Head, about which he said ‘those few hours cast a spell which changed my life'.
Since he made it famous, thousands have hiked this route in search of Wainwright’s legend as they follow his pictorial guides to the Lakeland Fells.
