Iceni Way [LDWA]
Ivinghoe Beacon, Aylesbury Vale
'Unique among long distance tracks because it can claim to be "the oldest road in Britain". Extending from Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire to Knettishall Heath in Norfolk, it consists of prehistoric pathways, ancient when the Romans came. Dotted with archaeological remains, it survives as splendid tracks and green lanes along the chalk "spine" of England.'
Ivinghoe Beacon, Aylesbury Vale
'Crossing six counties, the Icknield Way Trail is a 170 mile (274 km) route linking the Peddars Way National Trail in Suffolk with the Ridgeway National Trail in Buckinghamshire, which in turn links with the Wessex Ridgeway.'
Around and About, Winchester
'These self-guided trails combine the wonderful landscapes and scenery of the valley with the discovery of some of the county’s most important churches. They exhibit a wide range of architectural styles: Saxon at Headbourne Worthy; Norman at Bishop’s Sutton, Easton and St Cross; Georgian at Avington; late Victorian at Itchen Stoke.'
'Due to Ilkley's position in beautiful Lower Wharfedale, there are some superb walks beginning here, whether they be easy riverside strolls or longer moorland rambles. Thanks to the farsightedness of the Parish Council in the last century, who purchased the moor as a public open space, there are walks suitable for the young and old alike.'

'The Core Paths Plan and the paths network in Inverclyde are to encourage people to get out and about, be more physically active, improve their health and rely less on the car. It is about everyday trips to work, school, shops and services, as well as enjoying the outdoors for recreation. The Plan provides a framework of routes which is sufficient, as a whole, to give people reasonable access throughout Inverclyde.'

'Iris Murdoch's novels retell the myths of the ages, situating the timeless archetypes in the familiar world around us. This series of London Walks explores the city through her novels, in which it is background - but also a catlayst.
