Unique Charity Walk Starts In Scilly

The first steps in a 1,200-mile charity walk along the full length of the UK were taken in Scilly this weekend. And professional photographer Jonathan Pearson has an unusual angle. He’ll be taking photographs along the way and selling them to raise money, as part of his ‘Portrait of Britain’ project. Jonathan is extending the more usual Land’s End to John O’Groats route to include the most south-westerly part of the UK, Scilly, as well as it’s most northern point in the Shetlands. It’s likely to take him over three months to complete.
