Lizzie Carr set off weeks ago from Surrey on a 643km 
journey through the heart of the country to highlight the 
issue of plastic pollution.

Today, the “self-taught 
outdoor junkie” who left a 
career in marketing, will travel along the Leeds Liverpool Canal, River Ribble and Lancaster canal through Preston towards Lancaster.

She is set to finish her epic journey just south of Kendal.

The journey will have taken her through 193 locks and more than eight
kilometres of tunnels and 
aqueducts, carrying 30kg of equipment on her board, including a tent and supplies.
