In 1972 A Wainwright devised the Coast to Coast Walk, which traversed what he described as 'the grandest territory in the north of England'. The walk starts at St Bees, on the West coast, in Cumbria, travelling through the Lake District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the North York Moors National Park, heading towards Robin Hood's Bay, on the East Coast, in North Yorkshire.
