In 1972 A Wainwright devised the Coast to Coast Walk, which traversed what he described as ‘the grandest territory in the north of England’

A beautiful route of 197 miles, linking three National Parks over high level traverse. Stretching from St Bees on the west coast, to Robin Hood’s Bay in the east, the Coast to Coast route was originally devised by Alfred Wainwright, who said “Surely there cannot be a finer itinerary for a long-distance walk!”.

The path can be walked in its entirety; split into one day sections; or enjoyed as a series of shorter walks. It winds its way along three National Parks: the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North Yorks Moors. The Cumbrian section of the walk passes by locations including St Bees, Cleator Moor, Ennerdale Water, Rosthwaite, Grasmere, Patterdale, Haweswater, Orton and Kirkby Stephen.

The route was awarded National Trail status in August 2022, with upgrades planned by Natural England to improve accessibility, community engagement and more.
