Cross Wight Traverse

Isle of Wight

There are 600 miles of waymarked, unobstructed footpaths and no island could be as walker friendly as the jewel-shaped Isle-of-Wight. This lends itself to an east-west traverse of the island from Bembridge point to Alum Bay in the far west.

The publication 'A Ridge Too Far' covers all ten walks in the Purbeck Challenges Series of walks.
