Please ensure you have read our advice regarding the routes. If there is something you need clarifying then please don't hesitate to get in touch.

99% of the time, our routes will not start right outside your house. If you would like us to adjust where it does starts, so that your able to understand the route completely. Then please do let us know and we will help accordingly.

OS is a very good resource, so please do additionally let us know if you'd like us to show you how to use it.

 What Route Covers You? 

Determining A Route's 'Difficulty'

Determining whether a route is 'Leisurely', 'Moderate' or 'Challenging' is done from a pre-set criteria.

 

To get our criteria in the first place, we graded all aspects of a walk and then split them into the 3 categories of Elevation, Terrain and Obstacles.

We then look at our route and tick the features it has against our criteria. From that we can determine where the route best sits in our broad terms.

The complete tick list will be available on the 'Route Description' (once we release them), with a summarized version on the initial pages.

 

Challenging
Moderate
Leisurely

Please be respectful, not just to the locals and the area but also the paths themselves.

Clean up after yourself, your dog and PLEASE don't leave anything behind.
