Walking with the Wounded

Remembrance Parades

The Walk of Britain expedition will see four British and two US wounded veterans walk 1,000 miles across mainland Britain, starting in Scotland on August 22nd and finishing at Buckingham Palace on November 1st.

On 15 September their route was from Ambleside to Newby Bridge stopping for refreshments at Windermere War Memorial - photographs below.

The teams blog for the day read: Start Ambleside 09:30, Finish Newby Bridge 15:00; Miles today 13. Miles so far 364, miles to go 635:

"Today has been a nice short day after our long, hard day yesterday up Scafell Pike. We started in the morning at Ambleside and walked alongside Lake Windermere which was very beautiful and scenic.

As usual, we’ve had some great support along the way, lots of gracious donations in the bucket along the route right up until we finished in Newby Bridge.

Then this evening we did a Q&A at Sedbergh School which was really good! The students asked some brilliant questions and it was nice to share our stories with them.

So overall it’s been a very good day and everything is still going really well.

Alec Robotham"
