British Coast path Walkers

David Cotton’s excellent website features a list of walkers who have walked in the past or are presently walking the entire coast of Britain, either as I am in sections, sequentially or as John Merrill did in its entirety in a single herculean effort.

An excellent resource is Phil Sorrell’s superb site social hiking . The site records walks and detail in realtime, storing data, media and imagery of the activity -a very popular site with adventurers across Europe and further afield. Includes walkers, by cycle and at time more unusual forms of traveling across spaces : twitter: @DaylightGambler
