Marks Tey, Colchester
'Walk from Station to Station with our useful guides ... The Gainsborough Line is the marketing name of the Sudbury Branch Line, a single track railway line running through the rural area between Sudbury and Marks Tey in England. Prior to the Beeching Axe the line, known as the Stour Valley Railway also served Cambridge, Long Melford, Clare and Haverhill.'
'Welcome to the Meadow Walk [3.5 miles] the first section of the Gainsborough Trail, named after the famous painter Thomas Gainsborough, an approximate 12.4 miles continuous walkable route which will eventually encompass the whole of the Sudbury area, giving access to the best of the countryside in Sudbury, Great Cornard, Chilton and beyond.'
Gala Policies, Galashiels, Selkirkshire
The twelfth (and longest) of 12 Routes :'Galashiels lies in the central area of the region next to the historic town of Melrose. The town was built up around the Gala Water. The routes follow varied terrain from riverside to open hill and follow a section of the Southern Upland Way.'
'12 routes in the Galashiels area, most of which have links into the town centre. The routes are especially suitable for walkers ...'
Galashiels Town Trail [Scottish Borders Council]

'Two walks featuring the Herefordshire Trail. These are point to point walks between villages and are based on using the 412 bus (and the 36, X4 and 440).'
Cyfarthfa Castle, Merthyr Tydfil
Around and About, Ballymena
'Beyond the town centre of Ballymena there is a large cluster of activities and things to do for all the family. Set within the beautiful green Northern Irish landscape and twisted country roads you’ll sure understand why Ballymena has such a great reputation as “a great place to be”. A visit is a must and we proudly promise you’ll not be disappointed.'
However, sadly, in the translation of Ballymena Borough Council into Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, details of these Walks seem to have been mislaid. I have therefore replaced the Link pro tem with one to The Braid.

Gayton, South Northamptonshire

The project was conceived from the aspiration to highlight geology, landscape and associated heritage within the Abberley and Malvern Hills Geopark and to make these accessible to all.'
'During 1854 travel writer George Borrow journeyed right across Wales on foot. He recorded his interaction with the Welsh people, its language and scenery. Today you can follow in Borrow's footsteps using this app. Read his vivid accounts of Welsh life in the mid 19th century and uncover just how much change has taken place during that time.'
Lower Bemerton, Salisbury
'George Herbert is said to have walked to and from Salisbury Cathedral twice a week. While the exact route he took isn't known, it almost certainly took him across the water meadows. We can still do this walk today.'
South Bank, Lambeth
'This is a 60-mile walk from the South Bank to Wendover in 6 sections.' However the Hampstead Ramblers have now moved their Web Site and I could not find a Link to the Way therein.
