The Walk Across England

The road taken

In June of 2013, I set off on foot from St Abb’s Head in Scotland, with the strong intention and vague plan of walking across England.  1075-odd kilometres later, on 10th November, I dipped my toes in the English Channel at Southbourne, looking at the white cliffs of southern England and feeling pretty pleased with myself.  Along the way I visited friends and relatives, worked on a few small farms (wwoofing/helpxing), and had a couple of side trips to Ireland, Northern Ireland, Wales, and Florida. It then took me till the end of February to finish writing about the trip, because apparently writing about crossing a country takes longer than walking about it does.

The posts start here and with a few excursions continue on directly.
