The Coast to Coast Path - an overview

The Coast to Coast Path touches three national parcs: North York Moors National Parc, Yorkshire Dales National Parc and Lake District national Parc.


To be recognized as national parc in the UK means that the landscape has to be kept quite untouched and without intensive agricultural usage. Furthermore the landscape has to encompass for example certain amounts of natural surroundings like hilly territory, heath, moor and and undeveloped coasts or other such land. If these conditions are met 'normal' settlements may be maintained in these areas.


In consequence most of the land is private property and will be used only within the boundaries of named conditions. This means that the National trust normally has not to take further measures to protect the lands of the British national parcs.

Marking / Signs

The Coast to Coast Walk is no "official" National Trail. Markings are partial existing. A good description and map is strongly recommended.


See for both in our shop- section.

A good alternative of buying 8 OS Landranger Maps is the "Harvey Map" which covers the Coast to Coast Walk in two sheets.
