A long walk across England

A coast to coast journey

What is the story?

In the spring of 2007, Graham set out on a journey, to walk the Macmillan Way from Lincolnshire to Dorset; 300 miles in 18 days.

This is the narrative of that journey, combined with lots of pictures showing some of England’s most attractive villages, hidden and historic gems, and the pleasure of strolling through the pretty countryside.

Talk details:

What will I find out?

Perhaps you are a keen walker who would love to walk 300 miles.  In this talk you can do so from the comfort of a chair.

The Macmillan Way goes through wonderful English countryside, which is a delight to walk through in the springtime.  We will encounter canals and castles, a thatcher and a poet, oil-seed rape and topiary, and much more besides.  I’ll tell you the stories of cattle and horses, an allotment holder and strange signs and mystery shoes.

You will feel as though you have walked the walk with me.
