Walks

Shadowplay It was 2007 when I first stepped foot on a long distance path in the UK, and I've been walking them ever since.

Those that I've written about, are listed below.

Clarendon Way

A small but perfectly formed long distance route running from Salisbury to Winchester

Coast to Coast

Created by Alfred Wainwright, this 192 mile route goes from St Bees in Cumbria, to Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire.

Cumbria Way

Starting in Ulverston in this south, the Cumbria Way snakes north on a 70 mile trip to Carlisle, via some of the best scenery the Lake District has to offer.

Dales Way

From Ilkley in West Yorkshire, the Dales Way travels through the Yorkshire Dales before finishing up 84 miles later on the wonderful banks of Lake Windermere.

Downs Link

Following old railway lines, the Downs Link connects the North Downs Way with its southern equivalent.

Glyndŵr's Way

A traverse around mid-Wales, all in honour of the last Welshman to be crowned Prince of Wales.

Limestone Way

Fifty miles of walking through the White Peak in Derbyshire, the Limestone Way runs from Castleton to Rocester with great views and lots of limestone.

North Downs Way

Heading across the south of England's North Downs and folling the footsteps of the pilgrims of years gone by, the North Downs Way makes its way from Farnham in Surrey all the way to Dover in Kent.

Other Trails

Not every walking trail needs several days to complete. Some can be done in a day.

Pennine Way

The oldest National Trail in Britain, and perhaps the most famous. Linking Edale in Derbyshire with Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders, the Pennine Way is 267 miles of walking in the Pennines and Cheviots.

Ridgeway

Covering part of the ancient green path that once connected Dorset and Norfolk, the Ridgeway National Trail is a 87 mile walk across the south of England.

South Downs Way

The incredibly beautiful South Downs Way shows just how beautiful the South East of England can be. It's 99 miles between Winchester and Eastbourne are a delight to walk.

Southern Upland Way

Running across the bottom of Scotland, the Southern Upland Way traverses 212 of one of the least populated areas of Britain. It's also Britain's only official coast to coast walking route.

Thames Path

Following the most famous if Britain's rivers from the barrier to the source.

Wainwrights

In his Pictorial Guides A. Wainwright described 214 different Lakeland fells, many with several different routes and options. These are my visits to just some of them.
