With over 15,000 pages of free walking information, including many walk descriptions, "Walking Britain" is dedicated to the footpaths that cross the landscape. The National Parks feature strongly in the lists of walks including the Lake District, the Peak District and Snowdonia, not to mention the Yorkshire Dales.
Although the natural world is the theme, man-made elements such as villages, bridges, mines and churches are also included in the many walking routes.
Current site development
The aim is to make this the best walking site in Britain with a wide variety of walks and your input is always welcome. Current plans include consolidation of existing content and the development of more coverage from the Cotswolds, the less-visited parts of the Lake District and Scotland (Far north and Southern Highlands). In addition there will be more information on where to walk including the National Trails and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
New Look for Walking Britain
The update has now been completed with the final pages completed on 17th May 2014. There are a few new ideas in the pipeline and these will be announced in due course. If you spot any errors on the new pages or links not working then please contact Walking Britain.
New Server for Walking Britain
Walking Britain has recently been transferred to a new more powerful and faster server. There were a few issues with the migration of data but these have been mostly solved. Please report any problems so they may be corrected.
