Walking Across England: The Coast to Coast Photos {England} (36/48)

My Favorite 20 Coast to Coast Photos

Friends. Diane and I finished the Coast to Coast in September but the journey began back in January of last year, and it did not really finish until yesterday when I wrote the ending. And that’s how it is with a Grand Adventure. Any journey worth its salt will occupy a space on my brain for a lot longer than the actual two weeks of walking. The memory of each step I took across England with my precious friend Diane will stay with me for many, many moons.

And as a way of saying goodbye to this season of planning, walking and writing about this journey, here are my 20 Favorite Photos of The Coast to Coast.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this walk even a little bit as much as I have. I am already super excited about adventures coming in 2015. I’m looking forward to doing more walks with Macs Adventure!


  1. Thanks for taking us along on your journey Alison! Beautiful photographs.

    1. Thank you so much for following along!! I so appreciate it! 🙂

  2. Hello Alison,
    Thank you so very much!
    I completed the C2C as well in September of 2014 (I must have been a few days off your schedule), but your posts and your photos elicited so many wonderful memories for me that I felt compelled to write to thank you. You truly have a gift!
    I wish that I heard you two singing on that long day! I agree with you when you state that of all the C2C walkers, you two had the most fun.
    My only previous walks were The West Highland Way & The Great Glen Way (2012) and as you reside in wonderful Scotland (our two children’s favorite country!) you will know how those walks compare.
    Your wonderful prose, coupled with the stunning photos (not to mention the YouTube additions) brought me back to a time that I will always remember with joy.
    Thanks again for your talents, your sense of adventure, and your joyful nature.

    1. Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for writing! This made my day! I love hearing from fellow walkers! I haven’t done those two walks in Scotland yet but I really hope to. This spring I am doing the Speyside Way though, so hopefully I’ll have more fun photos + stories ahead! Thanks again for dropping by and for leaving your kind remarks!! 🙂
