Some of you may know that The Ramblers Association has launched an initiative to walk and note every footpath in the country. It has the catchy title Big Pathwatch! The aims behind this are:
The idea is to 'adopt' a square(s) on the OS map and walk every path on it noting what you see and find (a useful features reference guide is provided) and then submit them. The RA has really made a great effort to make the process simple and fun, for example activities to involve children. If you have a Smart phone you can download an app and note the details as you go along. Alternatively, you can print out your 'adopted' square for the walk and then submit your findings on-line. It really is that simple and painless!
So, if you're going out for walk or if you're a walk leader doing a pre-walk why not add your contribution to this great and worthwhile project which, after all, you'll benefit from!

Thanks and happy walking!
