Thought I’d share some of my favourite sources for walking in the UK. I’m not a head-out-onto-the-moors-with-just-a-map-and-my-boots type. I like to have a description of the walk, preferably with a bit of a map that I can follow with my phone (I’ve been pretty lucky with signal so far). My Dad is a map person…but he gets upset when they don’t make it back to him…
- AA Walks – Well described with good maps.
- Three Peaks (I have a second hand version) – Well described, has additional points of interest and information.
- Wainwright – I haven’t used these for a while, but walked in the lakes a lot when I was younger
- Walking Britain – Loads of walks on here, usually they include photographs and a map. Descriptions vary.
- National Trust – A mix of easier walks, usually lots to see on the way.
- National Trails – Focuses on main longer distance walking routes like the Pennine Way.
Anyway, that’s it for now. If I find more I’ll add to this list…feel free to recommend any other good sources you’ve found too!
