'An excellent guide' - Country Walking magazine, Spring 2019; 'It would be impossible to do this route without a copy of the superb Coast to Coast Path by Henry Stedman and Daniel McCrohan (Trailblazer).' - The Observer Magazine, August 2018; Reviews for previous editions: 'The most complete guide - with all the detail you'll need for a walk in Wainwright's footsteps.' - The Sunday Times; 'The maps are clearer and more easily read than Wainwright's.' - Backpack Magazine; 'There's something about completing a straight walking route rather than a circular one that gives me more of a sense of achievement. And adventure. If that route is coast to coast then my senses are magnified. At just under 192 miles, this is no day trip but it's all the better for it. With highly detailed pathways, and truthful accounts of overnight stays, this has to be the most definitive guide to this route so far.' - Escape Magazine;
