THERE AND NEVER AGAIN, A WALKING TALE BY TOM DAVIES

1200 miles from John O'Groats to Land's End via forgotten paths and cosy pubs. 

For three months from April 1st to June 30th 2019, I will be walking, strolling, stumbling and occasionally swaying through Britain in all its leafy, wet, windy and wetherspoon-infested glory.These 1200 miles will run from the wild coasts of North Eastern Scotland, through to the tamed beauty of Cornwall, and will take me through some of the least civilised places on our island, such as the desolate North Yorkshire moors, and Glasgow. The walk itself is an effort to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action charity, and I hope that anyone reading this might be inspired to do something similar, or at the very least just be mildly amused for a few minutes. For anyone with any questions or wanting to get on touch at all, my email address is thomasjdavies9@gmail.com. Thank you for reading. 

 

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR TIRESOME NARRATOR

Semi-Professional ale enthusiast

As an occasional hiker at best, this one-way, 1200 mile slog represents a far greater challenge than I am typically used to. However, walking the length of the UK has been a goal of mine for a long time. My reasons for undertaking this include charity fundraising, to put my largely useless history MA to good use by actually seeing the country I'm supposed to know so much about, and to get away from watching Leyton Orient throw the 2018/19 season down the drain. As you can probably guess, my hobbies include inflicting grievous bodily harm on myself over protracted periods of time, methodically rating pub lunches (I have a system), and disregarding my personal hygiene.
