The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Millets

11-12 Gaolgate St, Stafford ST16 2BQ, UK – 01785 336397

Hugely improved store, now it's moved over the road. More space for stock and for moving around. Staff most helpful.

Went in to buy some walking shoes and spent an hour trying on several due to none of them not quite fitting my feet properly. Eventually after making the assistant bring out box after box I found a pair that fitted. The staff were really accommodating of my requirements and persisted as much as myself in finding the right shoes. They could easily had fobbed you off with something high priced just to clinch the sale but they didn't. This is a really professional service.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
