On this area of the website we list some suggestions for self-guided walks. Walking is definitely a low carbon leisure activity, as long as it doesn't require high carbon modes of transport to get to and from the walk itself. UK main-line trains and coaches have substantially better carbon footprints than most cars, unless car occupancy is greater than two people. Also, there is the CO2 production relating to hotel stays and restaurant meals. Some hotels and B&Bs are concerned to increase their sustainability and list this on their websites.
Our walks are listed below. To see details of a walk click on its link to take you to a webpage with an OS map showing our track and some clickable 'points of interest'. There are some (low resolution) photos and a description of how we travelled to and from the walk, as well as notes on nature or history (as we are experts in neither, please don't rely on them!)
You can find many other walks which make use of public transport to get to and from start and end points at Car Free Walks Of course there are many other websites about walking, far too many to list here, but here are three others which we have found useful for providing walking route ideas: Viewranger, Walking World and walking-routes.co.uk.
