One Coast to Another: Following Wainwright from St Bees to Robin Hood's Bay

There are ways to begin walking Wainwright's Coast to Coast. Things that must be done. It's compulsory. It's written in the rules.

First you must stride purposefully to the starting point. You must fill your lungs with a deep breath. You must have a photograph taken next to the sign, monument or obelisk that marks the beginning of the trail. And you must proclaim loudly and clearly to all who will listen... "And so it begins!"

Of course it's best to do all that whilst there is no one else watching. And preferably whilst not wearing waterproof trousers that are three sizes too small for you.

One Coast to Another is the truly inspirational, heart-warming and awe-inspiring book of two thirty somethings who follow hundreds of other people walking from one side of the country to another, just because it's there.

Following Alfred Wainwright's route they traverse fells, get stuck in bog, get wet, dry off, drink pints, get dismayed at the lack of pies and wear bandanas of dubious design for 190 miles with one aim and one aim alone. To get a fridge magnet at the end.

What greater reason for doing it, could there be?

This second edition also includes a guide to planning your own Coast to Coast walk.

About the author

Andrew Bowden was born and raised in Manchester and spent much of his early years being dragged around Etherow Country Park a few miles from his parents house.  After abandoning hiking in his teenage years in favour of spending far too much time in front of computer games, he returned to the hills after settling in London.
He has walked far more trails than he'd like to admit to.

Losing weight has never been easier or more fun than with Leslie Sansone's WALK AWAY THE POUNDS. For over twenty-five years, Leslie has helped more women get off the couch and onto their feet than anyone else in the fitness industry. Her secret? If you can walk, you can achieve the weight-loss goals you dream about...with none of the intimidation or negative messages that have stopped you from succeeding before. Whether you are a beginner or have been walking with Leslie for years, whether you are a teen or a senior or somewhere in between, you will see results. You will lose real weight, and keep it off-twenty pounds, forty, sixty, or even more. All you need is fifteen minutes a day for starters, two feet, and a willing attitude. There is no fancy equipment to buy, no fad diet to follow, and no fitness club to join. The revolutionary program in WALK AWAY THE POUNDS is designed to keep everybody on the path to success, especially those who have never been able to complete a weight-loss plan before. It's a simpler approach to fitness, one that can change your life. Leslie's step-by-step workbook format sets up the program day by day. You just wake up, flip open the book, and follow the directions. You'll get a combination of in-home walking (that's right, you can do it right from the comfort of your own living room!), simple strength training, motivational breakthroughs, and commonsense advice to help you burn fat, tone muscle, reduce stress, avoid illness, shake off the blues, and boost your energy level sky high. It's never been easier. Women all across America have dropped between 20 and 150 pounds with Leslie Sansone. Now you can too!
