Peter's first book Essex Coast Walk was published in June 2009. The book describes his walk along the entire length of the Essex coast - the longest of any English county.
His second book No Boat Required - Exploring Tidal Islands was published in September 2011. The book describes Peter's travels to the 43 tidal islands which can be walked to from the UK mainland.
His third book Stand Up Sit Down - A Choice to Watch Football was published in June 2012. The book chronicles his visits to the 23 English Football League grounds that still have terraces and examines in detail the arguments for and against the choice to stand at football.
In his fourth book, The Next Station Stop - Fifty Years by Train, which will be published in August 2013, Peter revisits locations of childhood holidays on a 10,000 mile tour of Britain, discovering what it’s like to travel on our modern railways and comparing experiences with train journeys made over the last fifty years.
He has just started his fifth book - walking the Suffolk Coast.
Please note that the short novel Josh : Hero which was published in 2012, is not by me - it is written by another Peter Caton.
