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

Trespass

30 Gaolgate St, Stafford ST16 2NT, UK – 01785 223806

Helpful staff. Chain outdoor store. Limited stock selection, own brand products mainly.

Great stuff for camping and hiking

Millets

13 Gaolgate St, Stafford ST16 2BQ, UK – 01785 337019

Too much crammed into such a small space so maybe when they finally move it will be a better experience. Prices are quite high (normally cheaper on Amazon - however they normally price match).

They manage to cram in a great deal in such a small space. Decent gear.

Stafford Outdoor Leisure

45 Mill St, Stafford ST16 2AJ, UK – 01785 240594

Great shop and staff really know their stuff!

Decent selection of outdoor gear and the staff are friendly. Great store!

WalkingWorld.jpg
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 country. 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..
