In 2008 Mark Clarke embarked on a journey to visit the highest point in each of the eighty-five historic counties in Great Britain. Over the course of four years, he walked over 500 miles and climbed over 100,000 feet, sampling all that is great about Britain along the way.

Mark’s journey took in the mountainous summits of Scotland and Wales (Ben Nevis, the county top of Inverness-shire, and Snowdon, the county top of Caernarfonshire) as well as dozens of less visited high points, such as the unfortunately named Boring Field in Huntingdonshire.

High Point is Mark’s account of his experiences and the challenges he faced in his travels – including suffering a broken leg on a remote hillside in Scotland while walking alone. It is rich with historical information and observations about Britain’s counties and serves as an indispensable guide to the historic and modern counties of Great Britain and their highest points.

Each county has its own gazetteer section with information about the county, the county top, Mark’s ascent and local information. High point walk directions are accompanied by an Ordnance Survey map to help you plan your own High Point adventure.
