    Coast To Coast In The 1920s: A Tour From St. Bees Head To Robin Hood's Bay In Old Photographs
    Neil Honeyman - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    192 miles from West Cumbria to North Yorkshire, the Coast to Coast Walk was first described by Wainwright in 1973. This book, by postcard collector Neil Honeyman, came about when he did the walk in memory of his late father who completed it in 2006 at the age of 83. Rather than write just another guide to the route, Neil has adopted the slightly weird approach of describing the walk as it might have been in the 1920s and illustrating it with contemporary postcards that could have been bought along the route.
