Do you want to get fit, stay healthy and be happy? Then lace up your boots and start walking!
Ruth Livingstone was a busy 54-year-old GP, and a committed couch-potato, when she decided to take up long-distance walking. She began hiking the Norfolk Coast Path and loved it so much that, to the shock of her friends and family, she decided to keep going and walk all 5,500 miles of the British Coast.
In this wonderful book, Ruth describes how to plan a coastal walk in England - covering everything you need to know, including how to read a map, what to wear and what (not) to carry, and how to avoid the dreaded blisters. This comprehensive guide is beautifully illustrated and packed with practical tips and personal anecdotes. It will give you the confidence to set off on your own walking challenge, big or small.
By 2020, the England Coast Path should be completed. Thinking of having a go? Can't wait? Then this is the book for you.
