Beautiful classic walks with fresh creative imagination. Many of these walks find completely new routes, making them different from the walks that you find in a book or on one of the more official websites. Some of them make use of legal permissive paths, commonland, free access areas and local village paths to reveal wonderful new routes and land­scapes. Because these paths often change, this website is continually kept up-to-date, chiefly thanks to your feedback.

This website is a guide for people who love to walk, to observe and enjoy our incredible countryside (and town­scapes too) at a leisurely speed, and who like to read a little of the story behind the places they visit. Distances vary from a soothing 1 km (1 mile) to a bone-shattering 42 km (26 miles).

The routes are described in fine detail using both text and maps. If you like careful and precise directions all along the way, these walks are designed specially for you!

Our routes are found by sheer hard legwork, tracking and back-tracking and picking the best path out of many, not by sitting at home with a map!

Each walk is completely free. Just print it, download it or access it from your iPhone etc.
