Distance (miles)150
Overview

'A long distance path using existing public rights of way to give a circular tour around our county' Alert 'The Trail was the outcome of efforts by Herefordshire Council, Advantage West Midlands, the European Union and The Countryside Agency to enrich the rural economies of the towns and villages en route. Sadly Herefordshire Council has failed to make any effort to waymark the route or tackle a long series of obstacles. The path is blocked by cereals, oil seed rape, overgrown and broken stiles, and many of the signs are broken.' [Wikipedia 1 September 2017]

Overview

'Used in the 18th and 19th centuries when the herring industry was strong.  It was used by people bringing home a stock of salted herring for winter use and also by fishwives carrying huge creels of herring from Dunbar to the markets in Lauder ... Gradually the speed and ease of the railway lines left little need for people to carry huge weights of fish over this high pass and it fell out of use.  It is probably a long time since a herring has passed by this way. Another historic route similarly used for the trade in fish is the Buckie Fishwives Path, Moray.'

Distance (miles)55
Overview

Walk around countryside familiar from the James Herriot TV series: 'The walk, unlike most multi-day walks, is circular; the traditional start and end point being in Aysgarth in the heart of Wensleydale – possibly the most famous of all Yorkshire Dales'.

Walking the Herriot Way 'The guide book provides detailed walking descriptions for the 55 mile, circular trail in both directions (clockwise and anti-clockwise). It also includes 20 hand-drawn maps to help you navigate the route. Every stile, every gate, every change of direction is described so that you can be sure of walking the route with ease and confidence. The Gallery section of the site has photographs of many sections of the Way, so landmarks will seem like familiar friends when you look for them on the trail'.

Distance (miles)86
Overview

'The Hertfordshire Chain Walk is an 86-mile walk that crosses the county of Hertfordshire from south to north, starting on the northern edge of London and finishing in Cambridgeshire. Unlike the other long distance paths that I've walked, which either follow a straightforward linear route from A to B or else form a large "circle", this path consists of 15 circular walks of between 4 and 9 miles in length that are linked together to form a "chain" – hence the name Chain Walk. In fact there is a quarter mile gap between Walk 7 and Walk 8, so the Hertfordshire Chain Walk is also unusual in that it is a long distance footpath with a hole in the middle!'

Distance (miles)8
Overview

'The choice of name for this path which meanders along the River Hiz is based on history going back to the days of King Offa of Mercia who founded a religious settlement in Hitchin. The path follows the route the Hicca tribe would have more or less followed from Hitchin to the Danish Fort near the south east corner of Henlow.'
