One Man, Two Feet, Nearly 700 miles of England
Come hear about the trip that wound through the storied English countryside — its scenery, history, charms, and traditions — as experienced during a nearly 700-mile walk from Land’s End in Cornwall to the Scottish border. This was the first leg of a nearly 1200-mile walking odyssey of the length of Great Britain from Land’s End to John O’Groats. John Lynn of Peoria has plodded, pedaled, and paddled enough scenic and historic trails, roads, and rivers to circle the globe; is the only person to have visited and photographed all 2,400 towns in the state of Illinois; and has shared his experiences through over 4,000 slide presentations in three countries, with more to come.
