Stephen Neal  The England Coast Path

1,000 Mini adventures around the world's longest coastal path

England might not be the largest island in the world, but no other nation has opened so much of its coastline for public access. This book explores the England Coast Path*, finding 1,000 mini adventures to enjoy along its entire route. In 2018 Stephen Neale, as a path surveyor, spent months walking the England Coast Path, and in doing so has written a fantastically detailed and rich guidebook covering the route itself, along with everything from the best places to swim, hunt for fossils and eat seafood to hidden away beaches and canoeing spots. The bulk of the book is divided up into the 16 coastal counties and features 1,000 places to see, explore, camp and adventure around the coast. Each place also has map coordinates, basic directions to it from the path, and a short description. Walkers can either visit specific places or link highlights together, walking between them along the path. Environmentalists, volunteers, social campaigners, land owners and politicians have all come together to create a ‘ninth wonder of the world’. This path represents what makes England so great: a little bit mad, a little bit proud; but mostly a celebration of this nation’s most precious asset: the wild coast.
