Cross Country Kayak
In 2016 Andy became the first person to kayak the route that will become the UK’s first Long Distance Canoe Trail. He paddled from the West coast of England to the East.
His journey took him from Liverpool to the Humber across the centre of England using the Leeds-Liverpool Canal network and the Air and Calder Navigation and finally the Humber Estuary.
The route is over 160 miles long with 118 locks to navigate including the Wigan Staircase. The journey took Andy 5 days of long paddling and including a number of filming stops as the adventure was filmed as a week long special for BBC1’s The One Show.
