Walking Britain website

This article is from Signpost 55, Autumn 2017

The Walking Britain website http://www.walkingbritain.co.uk has 'over 19,000 pages of free walking information'. The website provides information on specific walks and walk routes, with National Parks & Trails, Long Distance Paths and individual walks of differing lengths covered.

Selecting the Peak District as an Area produces over 180 walks. For each walk, the length, ascent and grade (difficulty) are given, as well as a Walk Description (with Route Map and downloadable file). OS maps of the area and nearby walks (which could be built into a bigger walk if required) are listed. GPX files, for use with GPS applications, are available for some walks. You can also search by post code or place name to find local walks. So a valuable resource, alongside other walking maps and documents, to help you make the most of your rambling, particularly if you are in an area that you do not know so well.
