www.visorando.co.uk

Overview

Website derived from its French equivalent: 'The website was built on a participative model : everyone (private individual, tourism professional) can share their own hiking tours. Each track, before being published, is checked by a team of moderators. Then, walkers are invited to give their opinion on the routes followed. By collecting information from the field, we are able to keep the tracks up to date. It is this specific model that allowed us to build an offer reaching this level of quality, which is unequable on the free web nowadays'.

'Hi.  I like walking in the UK and from 2001 onwards I have been busy trying to do as many National Trails, LDPs, Regional Routes and Local walks as possible.  Occasionally a mountain climb, or cycle ride gets chucked into the mix and I will bung the details up on my site - the general tone involves mockney and some self deprication!'

Ones you can enjoy with friends and family or with your partner and that will take a couple of hours or less. As well as routes and maps, we’ll put reports on and photos of the walks we’ve done and maybe they’ll inspire you to get out and about too. Get some exercise! Clear out the cobwebs! You’re bound to have a lovely time and who knows… maybe in no time you’ll love a casual ramble as much as we do ...'

Overview

'Per-Rambulations looks for ways that go beyond mere mileage. Walking is more than a way to go between two points as quickly as possible. It is important to "see" the countryside rather than just looking at it. If we were to have a "mission statement" the nearest we would admit to is the last verse of W H Davies' poem Leisure "A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare".'

Overview

'The Yorkshire Dales provide one of the best walking areas in the country covering a wide variety of scenery and some isolated locations many of which can be accessed by public transport. Many of the walks make use of the excellent Settle-Carlisle train service and local transport links - no car needed! For this reason I would initially recommend a visit to the Ribblehead and Three Peaks area, Moorcock Inn, Dentdale and Little White Bus [Hawes] pages.'

Overview

'The UK's ancient pathways are a national treasure out there to be explored for their history, archaelogy and wild life. Now having a tad more time for this kind of pursuit, I have been investigating some of them recently - starting with the Icknield Way ... I have split the Way into circular routes each of which takes a bite-sized stretch that can be completed as a comfortable stroll in a leisurely few hours. The standard information available is great for taking you from A to B along the paths but these circular routes will allow you to plan a day's walk which will bring you back to A again by the end of the stroll.' Other Trails include: The Ridgeway; Greensand Ridge Walk; John Bunyan Trail; North Bedfordshire Heritage Trail; Three Shires Way.
