Starting fromWalsham le Willows

'Walsham-le-Willows is a village in Suffolk, England, located around 4 km south-east of Stanton, and lies in the Mid Suffolk council district. Queen Elizabeth I had granted Walsham-le-Willows to Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, in 1559. Because the village is documented unusually fully in surviving records of the time, the Cambridge historian John Hatcher chose to use it as the setting for his semi-fictionalised account of the effects of the mid-14th-century plague epidemic in England, The Black Death: A Personal History (2008).'

'David Beckham was born and grew up in Waltham Forest and is one of the greatest sportsmen of this generation. The Beckham Trail has been created to offer people the chance to trace his childhood steps, detailing the landmarks that moulded the early years of his life in Waltham Forest.' Unfortunately details of the 'Beckham Trail' as such seem no longer to be online; so I have replaced the Link with a more generic one.

Starting fromWalton-On-The-Naze

'Set of four walking trails in and around Walton-on-the-Naze in Essex ... Walton is a traditional seaside town on the east coast, unique in that it is surrounded on three sides by the sea. Its three miles of gently shelving sandy beaches facing south-east stretch from Frinton to the Naze. To the north, the sea sweeps round the Naze into the backwaters, known as Hamford Water, and the Walton Channel stretches right down to Walton Mere, only 300 yards from the main beach. The Naze, as well as being a natural open space, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) famed for its fossils found in the Red Crag cliffs.'

'Walking Day is held in high esteem by Warrington people ... Initially, it is understood that mainly members of the Church of England took part, but in 1857 the first record of Roman Catholic scholars joining in with the celebrations of Walking Day was reported in the Warrington Guardian. However, until 1908 the different religious denominations followed a separate route from the Church of England procession. Although in 1909 the same route was used by all denominations, the non-conformists and Roman Catholics did not assemble in Bank Park, nor take part in a march past the Town Hall. Eventually, in 1920 all participants in the procession came together to proclaim a joint acknowledgement of Christianity.' Held Early July.
