Walking the Coast of Britain

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

It is a long and committing journey. Since it was first done in 1978 by the now-legendary John Merrill, perhaps only a few dozen people have made a complete circuit in one walk, though many have walked and are currently walking the coast in stages. I know people who have travelled to every continent but who have never explored our own wonderful island in any depth. This is my opportunity.

Please support my charities and tune in to follow my progress. Read more about the walk, about the challenge and my principles of adventure
