When I walked Wainwright's Coast to Coast in 1991 the weather was so bad we had to keep to the road. I did go back to Nine Standard Riggs later. I have a weekly blog called 'The Secret Diaries of a Long-distance Walker' Facebook page. It is being read 63 countries. Do take a look. T he 1991 walk is included. My own coast to coast guide book was published in 1997 called 'On Foot from Coast to Coast: The North of England Way'. A quieter alternative. I have a few copies left tel 01904 488455.

I am delighted to be able to contribute to keeping this wonderful footpath open! Hoping to get up there this summer, with luck the work will have started...

We're doing the C2C in May 2016 and often visit Nine Standards Rigg. A wonderful location in need of some help. Good Luck with the fundraising.

Joanna Birbeck 6th April 2016

We walked the C2C last year, it was like the Somme going beyond 9 Standards Rigg. Happy to contribute but with the amount of money which comes into the local economy by way of C2C walkers, this should be centrally funded. Why oh why does so much money go into cycling projects and not walking??!!

Jane Monk 4th April 2016

We walked the first half of the C2C as far as Keld in May last year, really pleased to be able to support the appeal to improve this section and restore the peat. Good luck with the project !

Good luck with the project. I walked the c2c alone in 2011 (spectacular walk)and nearly got stuck at Nine Standards. Paving stones would have been great back then!

Well remember this bit of C2C, we teamed up with others and 'rescued each other' along the way. Would have been scary alone! Restoring the peat and making this section less hazardous will be a great improvement.
