Overview

'The Rights of Way shown on Ordnance Survey maps aren't necessarily exhaustive, and they may not always be accurate as changes to the Right of Way network made between map editions don't make it on the map. In England and Wales, the local authorities (unitary authorities or counties) are required to maintain a Definitive Map and Statement on paper, which is both definitive and up to date and must be publicly accessible. In National Parks, this may be delegated to the relevant National Park Authority. The rules in the other four jurisdictions covered by Geograph Britain and Ireland are different, and the above doesn't apply there.'

'At Wild About Wales we provide guided walks in the hills and mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. At the heart of the park lies the highest point in England and Wales; Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa. This beautiful mountain is the destination for many visitors and we delight in introducing its many routes to walkers and scramblers who come on our excursions.' Note that this Entry was originally Wild Walks Wales - but on review I could not find those listed on the Website of Graham Uney Mountaineering.

Overview

'Almost 28,000 Pillboxes were built in 1940/41 but now it is estimated only about 20% remain and many of these are in a poor condition. There may only be 1000 left in good condition. Their survival is threatened, even though interest in pillboxes is growing, and many more are likely to disappear. This website is a record of ones I have seen and how you can find them on walks throughout the country.'
