Graham King

Graham King, former owner and curator of The Museum of Witchcraft in Cornwall, is about to start his extraordinary journey from the toe to the top of the British Isles. Now in his sixties Graham is hoping to fulfill an ambition he has had for around 50 years.

The planned route

The walk will start at Lands End near his home in the South West of England and will end at John O’Groats in the North of Scotland. Graham hopes to wild camp in his tiny, light weight tent for most nights on his adventure but will use B&Bs occasionally if the weather is bad or if he is in desperate need of a shower.

Graham has just published his first book The British Book of Spells and Charms (Troy Books) and will be working on his second book, based on the sacredness of the landscapes he discovers, on his walk to John O’Groats.

It is expected he will take about 3 months to walk the 120IMG_00220 miles of footpaths.
