On Monday I'll be getting a train from Solihull to Windermere, with the idea of walking home by Sunday afternoon.
I've plotted a route - given limited time (and we leave now for Solihull) which was simply the first that came to mind as my cursor traced a largely southerly route down the Anquet map screen.
So I think my trip needs to be renamed 'towards' Manchester, as I don't think that in a little over six days I'll be able to cover the 263 km (165 miles) with over 7,000 metres of ascent that Anquet claims for this route.
I'll be posting details of my progress, so (whilst I'm not expecting it) if anyone would care to join me for a while, I'll be pleased to see you.
The route is summarised below:
Stage 1 - Waypoints 1 to 11 - Windermere to Borrowdale - 28 km
Stage 2 - Waypoints 11 to 23 - to Dent - 35 km
Stage 3 - Waypoints 23 to 37 - to Kettlewell - 43 km
Stage 4 - Waypoints 37 to 49 - to Ilkley Crags - 40 km
Stage 5 - Waypoints 49 to 60 - to Jerusalem Camp Site - 34 km
Stage 6 - Waypoints 60 to 72 - to Crowden - 38 km
Stage 7 - Waypoints 72 to 92 - to Timperley - 45 km.
The detailed intermediary points and map references are here.
My phone should be turned on.
I'll be in touch! Probably by way of short (you'll be relieved to hear) postcards.
