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

The Original Factory Shop

35 High St, Spilsby PE23 5JH, UK – 01790 754966

Decent enough shop. Staff aren't very friendly and the shop seems a bit higgledy-piggledy when it comes to the layout of the shop. The prices are good but some the products I've bought have either broke or never worked. I bought a halogen cooker for £40 and I the bulb broke the first time I switched it on. And the returns policy is really bad. With me they argued I must have used it wrong. With the cooker it was a matter of plugging it in there wasn't anyway I could have used it any other way. But after fighting my corner I finally got my refund. Be careful with clothes too as I've seen clothes on the wrong hangers, and on the store tags. Always check the number size sewn into the garment to avoid confrontation if you need a refund.

Always good but changed owners still similiar shop

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!
