iFootpath features in Surrey Life Magazine

The April edition of Surrey Life magazine includes an article by Christine Howard, Chairman of the Surrey Hills Society, on using technology to enhance your walking experience. We are delighted that iFootpath gets a mention as one of the best innovations in countryside technology.


surreylifemagsml‘Gone are the days when a walk in the Surrey Hills meant unfolding a printed map,’ explains Christine. ‘There is a bit of a revolution going on at the moment in the way that we explore our local landscape. It wasn’t so long ago that walkers found all their routes in books purchased from their local bookshop or by studying printed maps. Today though, you can get everything you need online.’

Christine’s article goes on to highlight some of the best innovations in countryside technology and we are really happy to find that iFootpath is the first of these. Thanks to our collaborations with Surrey County Council, Friends of the Hurtwood and several pubs and cafes, iFootpath has more than 100 digital walking guides across the county of Surrey. There are short family walks, easy-access walks for the less able, rail-to-ramble options for those going car-free as well as longer trails for the more adventurous.

Another innovation highlighted by Christine is the expansion of Google Street View to include national trails. As part of this, the North Downs Way officer, Peter Morris, walked the full 153 miles of the North Downs Way with a Google trekker machine strapped to his back, capturing 360 degree images of the full route. It is good to know that we are not alone in creating innovative developments to make the countryside more accessible to everyone.
