My maps have arrived from Sustrans - showing the cycling network between South Wales and London. This is largely what I'll be following.

The wonderful news is that between Bath and Reading, there is a canal which has a clear footpath run along it. This is the route I will follow across England (and there's even a few shortcuts!). Over the next few days I can properly work out the route, including the stopover points. That means I can start booking hotels and B&Bs!


  1. Have you consided using the Youth Hostel Association aka YHA, were possible they are a lot cheaper and just as good as hotels/b&b's. They can be found at All the best.

  2. Hi,

    I was wondering if you were planning on sending regular tweets, using a hashtag something like #walkforlis so that we can plot them on a map - We could set up some sort of system where your tweets could be plotted - along with you geolocation. You could post photos or musings as you do your walk.

    We could use the map to organise things to boost the final total - perhaps local news agencies might be able to use it?
