Now with 350 FREE detailed guides!

Beautiful free classic walks with fresh creative imagination. In fine detail, fully mapped, plus GPX, spiced with history. 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. Distances vary from a soothing 1 mile=1 km to a bone-shattering 26 miles=42 km.

If you like careful, precise directions all along the way, these walks are designed specially for you!

Our routes are found by sheer hard legwork, tracking, 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 smartphone.
