A couple who are set to complete a 6,000-mile walk around the UK coastline have visited Wells lifeboat station.

The walk is raising funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).

Antony and Sally started their journey from Saint Austell, Cornwall, on May 15, 2023, aiming to complete it in 12 months for Sally's 60th birthday in May this year.

They were inspired after successfully walking 312 miles around the Cornish Coast in 2015.

Following years of planning, the couple, who walk an average of 17 miles per day and have participated in more than 30 parkruns along the way, have planned their routes, plotted daily mileage, and found places to stay in their campervan.

They are aided by a supportive network of friends and volunteer drivers, including Daz, a shared friend from their participation in The London Tube Challenge.

The couple have said the trek has been particularly strenuous during cold, short winter days in Scotland, where they crossed long beaches and burns, even using a pallet as a makeshift raft.

So far, Antony and Sally have raised a commendable £7,100 for the RNLI.
