On my way: First 26.62 km down

A Coast to Coast Walk - Alfred Wainwright's classic walk across Northern England


So this week I have run 26.62km.

Starting the journey off at St Bees and ending at Ennerdale bridge.

St Bees is where the journey began. Virtually leaving the village on the western coast of Cumbria. The beautiful sandy long beaches are popular for people holidaying. It is also said that an Irish nun, St. Bega, was shipwrecked here in the ninth century. If you would like to learn more about the name and heritage of this place, I will leave a link at the bottom. It is super interesting and explains how St. Bees was named after the Irish princess.

Ennerdale bridge is a small village in Cumbria which  is situated on a winding road that leads from Cleator Moor to Ennerdale Water. The area surrounding the valley contains one of the largest forests in Cumbria.Obviously an important thing to note is that this village contains two pubs 🙂

All jokes aside. The village also contains a church which was built on the site of a medieval chapel between 1856 and 1858.
