Mail Online Reveals Best Pub Walks...including iFootpath

Georgia Diebelius of the Mail Online has written an enticing article revealing Britain’s best pub walks, the stunning watering holes where you can enjoy the scenery as well as a pint. We’re over the moon that Georgia has chosen an iFootpath pub walk as one of this elite collection of eight pub walks.


cornmillllangollenThe Corn Mill in Llangollen really deserves its place on the list and we loved creating the dedicated walking route for the pub, a 3 miles circular trail taking in the woodland slopes of Pen-y-Coed. The Mail Online explains, ‘The Corn Mill boasts a fantastic venue in the heart of popular walking routes for those seeking adventure and culture.  Llangollen railway, Pontcysllte Aqueduct, Llangollen Wharf, Chirk Castle, Plas Newydd, Valle Crucis abbey and Dinas Bran Castle are all a walk-able seven miles around the fairytale Corn Mill. The all-year-round magical routes, which have been added to a map by iFootpath, are part of stunning Llangollen - and are completed by the beautiful pub which sits firmly on the riverside.’

We know the article has generated lots of interest and we would like to extend a very warm welcome to all the new customers that have discovered iFootpath through the Mail Online. It is lovely to have your company on our walking adventure.

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
