We enjoyed reading ‘Alfred Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk’ a blog by Paul Tinker who completed the walk with his mate Dave and dog Toby, June 5th-June 16th 2011.
Thorney How was their Grasmere stop over, glad you made it guys!
The Coast to Coast Walk is the brainchild of Alfred Wainwright. It crosses three National Parks, and includes some of England’s best loved scenery. It is generally considered best to start at St. Bees beside the Irish Sea. The walk then passes through the mountains of the Lake District, across the Pennines and down into Swaledale, then over The North York Moors and beyond to Robin Hood’s Bay and the east coast.
Thorney How in Grasmere is one of the primary stops along the walk as the path crosses right by our main entrance.

They say – ‘Lakeland Walker is the only walking magazine devoted to the Lake District’ – ‘The next best thing to being on the fells’
We like – Readers Photos
And the – Photo Competition – I’m guessing this editions photo is looking across Crummock Water from somewhere near the top of Crag Hill (s’OK competition has ended now!) Great photo by the way.
But they also have some great walking featrures and the 45 minute fixes with lots of helpful information.
