From the Mersey to the Solway and the Isle of Man in the West and the Humber to Berwick in the east, ‘up north’ is described to us in the author’s own inimitable style. Industrial areas and the wilder landscapes are described with the same care and attention to detail. The result is a wealth of varied sea kayaking voyages to suit all tastes and abilities, from easy sheltered paddles to testing offshore passages and everything in between.

In addition to the usual important information needed to plan a trip recommended cafés, pubs and chip shops are strategically located to provide sustenance at the end of your trip. Detailed tidal information also allows the book to serve as a valuable inshore pilot for water users such as anglers, windsurfers and sailors.

Jim Krawiecki

Jim started paddling in any old kayak he could muster during the school holidays. He has since paddled (and swum) many of the exciting white water rivers of England, Scotland and Wales, as well as many of those in the French Alps. A passion for sea kayaking combined with an interest in writing and photography, brought about the first comprehensive Guidebook to the Welsh coast, for sea kayakers. His first publication (Welsh Sea Kayaking co-authored by Andy Biggs) is a great success and has already gone to a reprint.

Jim lives in Manchester and is a prominent member of North West Sea Kayakers. He regularly organises meets and sea trips. So a sea kayakers’ guide to northern England was the obvious choice for an encore.

Jim is also a passionate mountaineer, which in turn has led to his current employment at the offices of the British Mountaineering Council.

    :

    Great piece of work, an eclectic mix of trips which will offer something of interest to everyone. The areas I was familiar with were well covered, plus it inspired a few trips to new locations such as the Isle of Man and North Yorkshire. There is a tremendous amount of info packed in this book, highly recommended.
