Hi there – Thanks for visiting this website about my Summer 2019 walk across Britain, and other walks I am doing, or might do, in the future.
When was it?: I left Bawdsey near Felixstowe on the Suffolk coast on Tuesday 25 June 2019 and walked west on footpaths as close as possible to the line of latitude 52° North. I arrived at Pwll Deri near Fishguard on the Pembrokeshire coast on Friday 9 August 2019. For more info, see the About page, including my interview with BBC Oxford.
Watch: Please have a look at the trailer video and six weekly highlights videos below.
Read: You can also read a write up of each day’s walk using the Stages menu above.
The three charities I supported were:
Thanks so much to everyone for all their support with the walk and for all your donations. It was a real privilege to do this. Many thanks. Cheers, Richard x
P.S. 2024? It’s a little way in the future, but I’m thinking about another straight line walk in the Summer of 2024, this time walking north along the line of the meridian 3° West (starting from Lyme Regis in Dorset and ending in Orkney). Watch this space to see if it actually happens!
