It starts at Dunstable Downs, towards the north-eastern end of the Chilterns, and stretches south-west to Goring, where the river Thames separates the Chilterns from the Berkshire Downs.'
'The Macmillan Cross Cotswold Pathway is largely based on the Cotswold section of the Macmillan Way, but starting from Banbury and ending at Bath. We have also developed a route between Chipping Camden and Banbury known as The Cotswold Link. This enables walkers to do a Cotswold Round, going from Banbury to Bath on the Cross Cotswold Pathway, from Bath to Chipping Camden on the Cotswold Way and returning to Banbury on the Cotswold Link.'

'The five degree west line of longitude runs from the southern tip of the Cowal Peninsula to Cape Wrath and traverses some of the finest walking terrain in Scotland. The route described here was pioneered by the author in 2004 and attempts to follow the five degree line as closely as possible from south to north. It represents one of the most challenging long distance walks in Britain.'
'Inaugurated in 2009, to coincide with the 125th anniversary of the Greenwich Meridian, the walk begins at the splendid monument to King George V at Peacehaven in East Sussex and ends ... on the coast at Sand le Mere in East Yorkshire.'
Hardy's Cottage, Higher Bockhampton, West Dorset
'Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) set most of his novels and many poems in Wessex, once an ancient kingdom of southern England. The heart of Hardy's Wessex is Dorset and the Hardy Way is a journey through some of the most unspoilt parts of this beautiful county, extending from the coast then inland to the timeless Cranborne Chase on the Wiltshire border ... We believe the Guidebook written by Margaret Marande and updated in 2015 is essential not just to follow the route, but because the many excerpts from Hardy's work provide an extra dimension of enjoyment to discovering Dorset and his magical Wessex.'

'A 350 km orbital walking trail around London. The route never actually enters Greater London but runs through the countryside of neighbouring counties. The surroundings are hugely varied, ranging from dead flat fens to rugged chalk hills, rich in cultural and heritage interest and an outstanding showcase for London's protected green belt. The trail is easily walked as a series of day walks from London using public transport.'

'The Ravenber is a challenging coast-to-coast walk from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed, England's northernmost town. Following existing rights of way, the route leads the walker through terrain of dramatic contrasts. It passes first through the mountain heart of Lakeland, and traces the Roman road over the High Street Range; it crosses the pastoral Eden Valley, climbs the high Pennine, and heads towards the remote fell country of Northumberland. The vast northern forests and rounded heights of the Cheviot Hills give way to the leafy valley of the River Till, and finally the traveller follows the banks of the mighty River Tweed to reach the North Sea at Berwick.'
Coast to Coast on the Ravenber Way: A Walk Across Northern England from Coast to Coast Ron Scholes (Sigma Press, 2011)

St Davids Cathedral, Pembrokeshire
'Walk from St Davids Cathedral at the south west tip of Wales to Bangor Cathedral in Gwynedd, North Wales. It visits the best coastal scenery and the best mountain scenery in Wales, offering a unique opportunity to link the Pembrokeshire and Snowdonia National Parks in one walk ... There is now, the newly completed Wales Coast Path which has an excellent web site and provides a complete, alternative route from St Davids to Bangor along the coast. Much longer (501k instead of 400k) and nothing like as interesting as the route described on this Site but, if you are gluttons for punishment you could walk from St Davids to Bangor and back again, using both routes.'
Isle of Mull, Argyllshire
'A unique wilderness walk across the heart of Scotland ... Based on the book Kidnapped, by Robert Louis Stevenson ... Centred around real historical events ... A great way to explore Scotland.'
