Thanks very much for visiting this website about my Summer 2019 walk across Britain.

NEW: Read the final daily update at Fri 9 Aug.

And to watch the final weekly highlights video (Week 6), scroll to the bottom of this page.  (Fullscreen, headphones & volume if possible.)

On the walk I found lots of reasons to be hopeful and I’ve tried to capture some of this in the weekly highlights videos and daily write ups.

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.

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.
