Updates to the Planning a Trip section

Published 29 November 2011

Not that sheltered then!

A couple of months ago I was looking at the web stats for this website and, to my surprise, one of the most popular set of articles were about planning walking trips.

I’d originally written the four guides as a bit of an afterthought and they hadn’t particularly had the love and attention that they probably deserved. They were barely promoted anywhere and each was a different structure, and each contained information in a slightly different way.

Given their usage it was time to give them a new look and their own section in the site navigation. And, over the last few weeks, I’ve been steadily updating them.

The exact contents will vary depending on the walk, but each walk will generally get the following sections:

As well as the new structure, there have been updates where necessary, for example when a hostel has left the YHA network or where a major change has happened.

To celebrate this new launch, today I’ve also added a brand new guide for planning a trip to walk the Pennine Way.

Naturally being for the granddaddy of all UK walking routes, it’s the biggest guide of all, and even includes a full itinerary for anyone wanting to walk the route purely in hostels and bunk barns.

I hope you find the new guides useful and informative and if you’ve any feedback, don’t hesitate to let me know.
