New Year - new opportunities ..... Why not become a National Trail volunteer?

9th January 2014

For January, dare I say, gales/flooding apart, to date it has been pretty mild.

I challenge anyone who says that winter landscapes are dull; the lack of vegetation and bare trees give the chance to glimpse what feel like previously unseen horizons. Why not visit one of our circular walks, with the winter sun on your back and the splendour of the Peddars Way ahead of you, there is no better place to be or time of year to be out. Check out the circular walks on the ‘Plan Your Visit’ page, they are located under ‘Additional walks’.

In 2014, we hope to attract more volunteers to help us maintain the National Trail, with a particular view to monitoring some of these circular walks.

To become  a National Trail volunteer you don't need qualifications or be an experienced long distance walker; the majority of volunteers walk their section of the route (usually between 3-5 miles) four times a year, once each season, and fill in a report form on their findings. However, there are many other ways in which you could help, If you would like to find out more, or would like to apply please follow this link. We really couldn't maintain the route to the high standard that it currently is without the invaluable support of our current National Trail volunteers. Thank you to each and everyone for their time and enthusiasm!
