English summits in one continuous walk
Eric Hardman is the first person to complete a continuous walk over all the English mountains. The walk began on April 13th from Wooller in Northumberland and covered the Cheviots followed by the Northern Pennines, Lake District, Dales, Peak District and Dartmoor in that order. The total distance covered was 1,162 miles and 200,000 feet of ascent.
