Cep & Steve

We are semi-keen walkers who are lucky enough to find ourselves with the time to embark on (and hopefully the energy to complete) a long held ambition to stroll across the breadth of England, without having to worry about previously limited annual leave. We are totally new to this blogging...

Why Dodgey Knee? My knees always seem to incur some damage, no matter what I do. On the Pennine Way I punctured my kneecap falling on some rocks. I used to practice a martial art, and I wrenched my knee. We bought a giant dog and he wrenched my knee....

Father Shaun

I have had a passion for walking since my early teens when I first visited the Lake District with my church youth group. We stayed in a Youth Centre at the foot of the Kirkstone Pass, in the beautiful valley of Patterdale, near the tiny lake of Brotherswater. It was...

Phil Dean

Countryfile

First of all I should point out that this was my second trip across the C2C. I was joined by a colleague from work Scott, for the whole trip and a long time pal Craig who could only do the Lakes section. We are all 40 and reasonably fit, though...
