I set out on this adventure to traverse distances in the spirit of romance, out of reverence for the past and to find and leave a part of myself in England's history. Walking the CW is following in the footsteps of everyone in the past, along co-existing periods of time, at different speeds, encompassing different worlds. A path is made by the movement of the accumulated steps of its users over time. This being true, then each CW walker makes their own path. Although it is public property, its also strongly private, forming part of each walkers' personal history and creating a string between the recent and distant past. I became embedded in the landscape, the vibrant, shared landscape into which our ancestors and we are woven. Walking the CW has been one of the deepest experiences I have ever had the privilege to enjoy.
