As a teenager I read a book. The book was Journey through Britain by John Hillaby. Once I had finished it, I read it again. I also read his other books but none had the effect on me that the first did. One day, I told myself, I would do the same as the author had done. I would walk from one end of Britain to the other. The years passed but the ambition never did. I have yet to achieve my aim but I shall. This site records the period leading up to my great adventure. I have a loose set of rules in place. It is a relatively simple premise. To walk from the most southerly point on mainland Great Britain to the most westerly, finishing at the most northerly. In other words, Three Points of the Compass. For good measure I may as well take in Land’s End and John O’Groats too. It shall be a long walk.
