‘UK’s rudest hike’ takes bloke from Cockermouth down Little Cockup to Lickey End

'UK's rudest hike' has taken a bloke from Cockermouth through Little Cockup and Tittensore Hill to Lickey End.

James Forrest trekked 326 miles from his home in Cockermouth – to his brother’s house in Lickey End, in an innuendo-fuelled journey which saw him summiting peaks such as Great Cockup and Andrew’s Knob.

The 39-year-old undertook 11 marathons in 11 days in his pursuit of pun-filled places, including woodland amusingly labelled Nanny’s Breast, a nature reserve called Nob End, and a waterway titled Bottoms Reservoir.

He said: “There was a certain poetry to it, with me living in Cockermouth and my brother moving to near Lickey End – and some silly banter led to a bet that I wouldn’t do it.

“I hate losing so I ended up going for it, just to prove my brother wrong."

Adventurer James, a freelance writer, said he came up with the hilarious idea after his brother moved home and then challenged him to take on the epic journey.

He said his incredible trek, was to raise money for testicular cancer charity Baggy Trousers UK.

He added: “Some people think it’s inevitably a bit childish. But I think most of those people just don’t have a sense of humour, and many saw the funny side.

“Ultimately, I like to think my journey was a celebration of the very best of British eccentricity and quirkiness.”

His favourite finds included Willey Lane in Cockerham, Butt’s Fold in Cockermouth and Twatling Street in the Lickey Hills.

And he said he was particularly proud of himself for finding the hilariously-titled Gloryhole sculpture, which took some finding Bilston, West Mids.
