Just Coasting
A record of our walk around the coast of Britain

Welcome to our blog. If you would like to know more about the “hows” and “whys” of our walk just follow this link Dreams to Reality – What it is all about . If you just want to read the blog posts; look below.

For those who who like “recent first” the posts are listed in reverse chronological order on this page. For those who like to to read in chronological order and see a general map and distances, go to the section pages to follow our progress. There should be links to each section at the head of each page.

If you just want the blog feed click here.

Finally feedback is welcome.

Some notes about the posts:

  • The OS map clips may not all be to the same scale on the page but the blue grid lines are at 1Km intervals which can help gauge distance.
  • The Ordnance Survey map clips are for personal use only and clipped from SatMap digital software provided by Satmap Xpedition and Outdoors GPS (and one or two from Viewranger now defunct). Maps are intended to indicate our route and are not intended for navigation.
  • The smaller photos are usually part of a gallery and if you hover over the image and a finger pointer appears then you can click on the image to see it full size. (Does not apply to mobile phones).
