|The route was conceived by Alfred
Wainwright, who believed that such is Britain's wealth of footpaths, bridleways, small
roads, lanes and places of open access that there are any number of walks which can be
taken without needing landowners' permission and without trespassing. This pathway
traverses such magnificent walking areas as Ennerdale, Honister, Grasmere and Grisedale.
The moors provide a stark contrast to the Lakes and their utter lack of adornment makes
them an easy place to get lost. From Osmotherly you are on the North York Moors and the
perennial flow of the countryside is neatly punctuated by the tiny Yorkshire villages
which offer comfortable accommodation after a satisfying day's walking. As time passes the
smell of the sea grows ever stronger, through Rosedale, Glaisdale, and Grosmont, and
finally down to Robin Hood's Bay. When you reach it, the challenge of the Coast to Coast
has been met.
