A journey through three national parks
11 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Julia Bradbury had already tackled ten walks from Alfred Wainwright's 'Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells' for the 'Wainwright Walks' series in 2007. Here she takes on the late AW's most famous challenge, to walk across the North of England from the Irish Sea coast at St Bee's Head to the North Sea coast at Robin Hood's Bay. Along the way she crosses three English National Parks; the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. The series was recorded in September 2008, after one of the wettest Augusts on record. Julia encounters some driving rain in the Lake District section, and the conditions are particularly boggy when she traverses the Pennines in Episode 3. However, she takes on the walking challenge with her customary high spirits, despite the adverse weather, and fortunately the weather does improve during the second half of the walk. By the time she gets to Richmond, it is even quite sunny. The series features some beautiful aerial photography of the Lakeland fells and Swaledale, and also includes clips from an earlier television series in which Alfred Wainwright revisited the coast to coast walk in the company of Eric Robson.
