Links & Stuff

I’ve walked all of the routes on this site and many of them are of my own devising and not intentionally lifted from other sources. Where possible I’ve tried to include routes that are maybe a little less obvious than the more classic ones usually described in books and on other websites. This means that some of the routes, particularly ones in the Peak District, include sections of walking away from the more established and obvious paths. These are sometimes difficult to indicate accurately on the 1:50,000 maps used on this site and so I’ve tried to include a description where possible.


Striding Edge (Lake District) – Sean McMahon’s excellent website, with top quality photos and cute canines to boot.
