Mark Moxon's End to End website

Mark walked from Land's End to John O'Groats in  2003, mainly following Andrew McCloy's book, and has assembled an impressive website about his walk and about the End to End walking challenge generally. He's also published an entertaining book about his walk.

Martin Hockey's End to End website

Martin walked End to End in 2004, and his website is worth looking through.  In particular it includes a comprehensive "links" section to other End to End walking websites (so I don't need to do one).

John Butler's End to End website

John Butler spent sixteen years (1988 to 2004) walking End to End in bits, documenting his walks on the web as he progressed. A labour of love, still being updated as he improves his route and rewalks part of it. He's ended up with an excellent online guidebook, with the emphasis on quality photographs.

Andrew Walker's End to End website

Not updated recently, but it includes a lot of tips on planning your End to End walk.
