We started in 1998 trying to work out a way that we could walk round Wales, linking all the Welsh Cistercian abbeys, medieval and modern.

Category:Worcester
Distance (miles)615
Overview

'Long-distance footpath in England that approximates the escape route taken by King Charles II in 1651 after being defeated in the Battle of Worcester. From its starting point at Worcester the route travels north to Boscobel and then south to Stratford upon Avon. It then continues south to Stow on the Wold before turning south west towards Bristol via Cirencester. South of Bristol the route is almost directly south across the Mendip Hills to Wells and then on through Somerset almost to Yeovil and then south west to Charmouth.There is then a short section along the Dorset coast before turning north again to Yeovil, before turning east across the Downs to Brighton and Shoreham-by-Sea.'

Overview

'Long distance walking route running the length of Scotland from Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wrath. Devised by outdoors writer and broadcaster Cameron McNeish, the Trail offers very varied walking, following long-established footpaths for much of the distance but becoming progressively more difficult as it heads north, finishing with a tough stretch of backpacking - with some pathless and demanding terrain - on the final stretch of the Cape Wrath Trail.'

Distance (miles)495
Overview

'A "hop on, hop off" circular long distance hike ... For years I've wanted to plan a walk that links the official Yorkshire long distance trails into a circular route, linking the Ways with high peaks in some of the wildest parts of Yorkshire. The Wild Yorkshire Way is the result ... Very few people will attempt the entire route in one go, but you can enjoy sections of the route, or even single day walks, and slowly complete the walk by filling in the missing sections. The route prefers high and wild terrain wherever possible, although the wildest and hardest sections usually have easier alternatives. You will notice that several day walks start and end at pubs, which is of course entirely intentional ...'
