Everest England

with Peter Owen Jones

How to climb Everest without leaving England

A unique hill-walking guide with a culminative ascent the height of Everest – 29,000 feet in 12 days.

BBC TV presenter and celebrity vicar Peter Owen Jones joins us to share his own personal ‘Everest’ and to show us how we can embark on our own without leaving England’s green and pleasant land. Ascending hills of varying sizes whose ascents add up to the same height as Mount Everest, celebrity vicar and countryman Peter guides the reader on a road trip covering hand-picked hill-climbs in different parts of England from Cumbria to Cornwall.

This walking journey takes in sacred places found on coastal cliff walks, ancient sites, tors, peaks, mountains and the highest peak in England.

 

  • I wanted to see what it would be like to get above the plane, to get some perspective on life, but I had no idea that what would emerge in the writing of it was kind of what lay deep within me. It wasn’t the book I was planning to write.
