For long enough this website has been embryonic – nothing more than something i’d think about on the way to work or whilst enjoying a quite walk. Even when I started to work on the website it became a drawn out process, and I scrapped and started over a few times, as I was struggling to achieve what was in my head.
What i’ve created here is a library for walks in Yorkshire, which will grow over time with new routes added every week – so whilst it is currently a small site with a handful of routes, it will grow into something much greater. It is my goal to create a website that allows people, wherever they live or visit in Yorkshire, to find a nice walk. The walks are filterable too, so you can search by location, duration, distance and even key features like waterfalls or castles.
If you decide to go on one of the walks, please bear in mind standard safety elements, like the fact that you may need a map (particularly for peaks and moorland walks) to prevent you getting lost, a compass to keep your bearing and checking the weather before you go for a walk. Also, we don’t give you a postcode to input into your sat nav for fear that we may get you lost! Each route has it’s location linked to on Google Maps, and from there you can plan your route.
