Delayed opportunity to fulfil New Year’s resolutions!!

The sun is coming out – so get walking on your favourite National Trail – or explore a new one!

After all of the recent storms many of the Trails have had problems – and in any case who but the hardiest walker would want to have been outside??  But the weather is improving as we move towards Spring so the Trail officers have been out making sure that routes are passable and safe (or there are appropriate diversions in place).  So please be aware of the fact that you need to make sure you are appropriately dressed and allow time to take account of any temporary diversions. We want you to enjoy these iconic routes and the special places through which they pass – so get those galoshes out and plan your next walk!
