Every year the weather in the UK follows a unique pattern and the various highs, lows and extremes bring a combination of challenges and support for our wildlife. So how did 2015 fare?
Through history the best minds have found that walking, whether a quick five minute jaunt, or a long four hour trek, has helped them compose, write, paint, and create. Andrew Tate, a freelance writer and neuroscientist, has posted a super article on Canva, explaining why everyone from Beethoven and Dickens to Darwin and Steve Jobs took long walks and why you should too...
While walking on Cissbury Ring recently, we came across a bunch of people sporting some amazing colourful bobble hats. Turns out it is a small British company that we thought you’d want to hear about too...so, meet Jo from Kubixl.
You can’t beat an autumn woodland walk. The autumn colours are particularly bright this year, we are getting reports from across the country that the colour spectacle is not to be missed. Find time in the next couple of weeks to visit a woodland near you...you won’t be disappointed.
Two of England’s National Parks are set to get bigger from August 2016, following an announcement from DEFRA. Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire will share the largest area of almost continuous National Park land following a decision to extend the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
Our native nutkin, the red squirrel, is only found in certain areas of the UK, which is why the Wildlife Trusts are working to protect them - and encouraging you to help too. Red Squirrel Week, which runs from Sat 26 Sept to Sun 4 Oct 2015, is a great time to look out for distinctive russet fur, tufted ears and a twitching tail; red squirrels really are a captivating sight.

We have waved goodbye to August, and September is passing before our eyes. For those sun worshippers amongst you, it’s easy to become sad as you mourn the passing of the long, lazy days of summer. But please don’t despair, autumn has lots to offer and it’s a season to be loved and embraced. Here we celebrate ‘Six Reasons to Love Autumn Walks’.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
