The autobiography of Cedric Robinson ,Queen's Guide to the Sands

Cedric Robinson


ÜCedric Robinson has become internationally famous over the last forty six years in his unique role as The Queen’s Guide to Morecambe Bay Sands, a position which he has now held longer than any of his predecessors going right back to the reign of Henry VIII.

Since his appointment in 1963 Cedric has transformed what was becoming an archaic piece of history into a modern day recreational institution. From modest beginnings escorting only a handful of walkers, Cedric now safely guides around 10,000 people a year across this beautiful and fascinating landscape of North West England.

Although now aged 76, Cedric’s passion and enthusiasm for his chosen calling remain undiminished. His unique knowledge of Morecambe Bay and its shifting sands is regularly called on by the media and rescue organisations. He has received numerous honorary degrees and awards but remains a modest man happiest in the landscape he so clearly loves.

In this his eagerly awaited autobiography, Cedric looks back on his amazing life, early fishing days, family, the walks, special awards, celebrity and royal crossings and much more. It is a truly fascinating read and beautifully illustrated book.
