Coast17 – Walking the Coast of Britain

Hi, I’m Ken Scott, photographer, adventurer and a few other things. In February 2017 I set off from home in West Sussex to attempt to walk around the British coast. All 5600 miles (9000 kms) of it. My latest adventure challenge.

You will know by now that I have been plagued by a recurring shin splints injury and have sat out two enforced recovery breaks. My two stints have taken me from Shoreham by Sea to Plymouth and from Minehead to Llanelli.

The original goal now looks out of reach, but I will be walking as much of the coast in this calendar year as I can. It will mean cherry-picking off the bits I really want to walk from here forwards, whilst remaining true to my Principles of Adventure, which are of the utmost importance. Please support my charities and tune in to follow my progress.
