Navy vet walks 8,903-miles around entire British coast - visiting 243 lighthouses

A Royal Navy veteran and lighthouse fantastic has achieved his “lifelong ambition” of walking 8,903-mile around the entire coast of Britain. Jim Morton was 60 when he set off from his home in Yorkshire and spent the next 537 days crossing rivers and ragged cliffs edges, supported by his doting wife Sue, 63. Jim set off from his home in Penistone, South Yorks., on April 12, last year, before heading 50 miles on foot to join the coastline, near Widnes, Cheshire.
