British Heart Foundation

Home Page

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.

Many of the walks on this website have been submitted by other authors keen to spread the word about their favourite routes. You can do the same - just click HERE.

Another "New Look" for Walking Britain!

The site was completely redesigned in May 2014. However the rise in popularity of mobile and tablet platforms means a fresh approach is required and this responsive web site is the result, with completion due by the end of July 2015. Although most of the pages have been reconstructed some work remains to be done. Please report any issues you might encounter so I can make sure all users are happy with the new site.
