'Derbyshire is one of England's finest counties for walking offering variety above most. The county includes a substantial portion of the Peak District National Park and the southern extremity of the Pennine range of hills extends into the north of the county. The county also contains part of the National Forest, and borders on Greater Manchester to the northwest, West Yorkshire to the north, South Yorkshire to the northeast, Nottinghamshire to the east, Leicestershire to the southeast, Staffordshire to the west and southwest and Cheshire also to the west ...

Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, Inverness-shire
'Be prepared is a very sensible approach to life so I would not suggest anyone attempting this walk without careful planning but even with the top in cloud and a section of the path covered in snow it was impossible to get lost ...'
Humber Bridge Country Park, Kingston upon Hull
'The Beverley 20 is a walk in the East Riding of Yorkshire that runs between Beverley Minster and the Humber Bridge ... The paths themselves are also used by other longer routes. The section from the Humber Bridge to North Ferriby is used by the Yorkshire Wolds Way, High Hunsley Circuit and the Trans Pennine Trail. The Beverley 20 is the first stage of a four-part walk from The Humber Bridge to Filey, The East Riding Heritage Trail.'
Pateley Bridge, Harrogate
'This walk is a lovely wander around the Pateley Bridge area. It is also a fascinating history lesson. The walk starts in the town and takes us to the lovely Fishpond Wood near Bewerley. We then head west over deep green meadows covered in swathes of buttercup and vetch. Eventually we arrive at the edge of Coldstones Quarry at Greenhow. Coldstones is a working quarry with accommodation for a viewing of modern quarrying techniques should you wish to visit. Our walk takes us past the quarry and round Bewerley Moor to visit old lead workings at the disused Cockhill and Providence Mines ...'

Forest Lane Head, Knaresborough, Harrogate
'This Circular Route around the Historic Castle town of Knaresborough takes in quiet lanes, river side paths and ancient rights of way as it circles the town. With less than 300 metres of climbing the route is achievable in one long day, or can be broken up into several small more leisurely sections, which can be accessed by short walks from Knaresborough Town Centre. While not marked on the OS map, route literature can be found in the Knaresborough and Harrogate Tourist Information Centre.'
Church Stretton, South Shropshire
The Long Mynd Hike (which in Welsh means Long Mountain) is a 50 mile competition hike open to anyone aged 18 or over which takes place over the first weekend of October every year. The hike follows a set figure-of-eight route over the rugged countryside of South Shropshire and the Welsh Marches, with about 8,000 feet (3,000 metres) of climbing and covering eight summits.'
Brierly Forest Park, Ashfield
'Explores the changing countryside in Northwest Notts. Not so long ago this was a walk to work but with time to heal it is becoming mature landscape with signs of man's intervention blending back to nature.'
Biggin, Derbyshire Dales
'This fabulous and challenging walk is the distance of a marathon but it would be a travesty to run it like an athlete; much better to stroll and take in all the beauty on offer.'
Croxton Kerrial, Melton
'This route, which I first walked back in 1990, makes a circular tour of 21 miles mostly through Leicestershire around the Duke of Rutland's ancestral home, Belvoir Castle. The walk can start in any of the delightful villages along the way.'
Woolsthorpe and Belvoir Castle Walk [Grantham Canal Society]
Gradbach, Staffordshire Moorlands
'This walk came top of the list when I put an enquiry on a walking newsgroup asking for the best walk in the Peak District. With highlights including Gradbach, Hanging Stone, Lud's Church, Roaches and Hen Cloud it certainly justified the replies to my question as being the best single walk in the Peak District. It is a classic popular Peak District walk.'

Lawrence Hill Car Park, Telford & Wrekin
'The most spectacular Shropshire walk with fantastic woodland and views to rival those of many higher mountains.'
'Dedicated to the super walking areas of Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees. These three, along with Leeds (which is found in my Leeds and Harrogate section) form the boroughs of West Yorkshire. The county is rightly renowned for its industrial past but it is also a county of excellent walking opportunities ... Altogether the area boasts numerous heritage walks and trails. This site aims to create a comprehensive library of them. You are guaranteed excellent walking in West Yorkshire.'
'The "Yorkshire Dales Celebration Way" is my own creation. This unique Long Distance Footpath is my tribute to this fantastic National Park. At approximately 130 miles long (depending on the various alternatives provided) it is designed to be walked in eight days. It conveniently fits it into a "one week holiday window" especially suitable to starting and finishing on a Saturday or Sunday.'
