Land’s End has been the iconic starting point for many length of Britain cyclists, walkers and drivers, but one endurance athlete will now attempt to set off on a 1,000 mile swim to John O’Groats.
On the July 1, 32-year-old Sean Conway will attempt to become the first person to swim the entire length of Britain.
His 1,000-mile route will start in Landâ€™s End and work its way up the north coast of Devon and across to Wales. After going along the West coast of Wales he will cut North to the Isle of Man and then onto Scotland before making his way through and around the Hebrides before cutting East along the North coast of Scotland and finishing at John Oâ€™Groats.
