While a gentle stroll around the park or in the countryside might be most peopleís idea of walking, itís not an ideal shared by all walkers. Some people like their walking to be hardcore, much more extreme than just a gentle stroll. For these people there is fell walking, trekking and other challenging walks. Fortunately for those seeking more from their walking, or trekking, Britain is stuffed to bursting point with fantastic places to walk. You could take the High Peak Trail from Middleton-by-Wirksworth in Derbyshire and call in at the Middleton Top Visitor Centre. Just as challenging, but in a very different way, are the Real Ale Walks from Nether Stowey in Somerset. This is the perfect combination for someone who enjoys the country pub as much as the countryside itself! You can even walk for charity. The Macmillan Cancer Support charity, for instance, promote walking for charity. You can sign up to join an existing walk or even add a new walk of your own. Then, as you walk, the charity benefits from your sponsorship. Dedicated walkers might consider a walking holiday, there are plenty available in the UK. Whether youíre walking guided or unguided be sure you are properly equipped and prepared. If planning a walk in remote areas you should always check the weather forecast before you go. Bad weather can be very dangerous in the if you get caught unprepared.
