Walking Routes at the click of a mouse!

Country Walking and Trail have launched a new Routes website, giving you access to loads of great walks at the click of a mouse button. Each walk comes with clear Ordnance Survey mapping and step-by-step directions.

The service is FREE to all Country Walking and Trail subscribers, who also receive FREE online access to Ordnance Survey Landranger mapping for the whole of Britain. Other readers can still search the database and pay to subscribe to the online routes service. They’ve teamed up with Memory-Map TrailZilla to make the site ultra-easy to use.

You can search walks, and download maps, step-by-step directions and GPS trails. You can even upload your own walks for others to share.

Record number of visitors for January 2012

The new website continues to attract new visitors and members, and in January 2012 the website received a new record number of visits. 208 people came to our site during the month, viewing 488 pages. Thanks for the support, especially those people who have supplied pictures, and I hope to add more articles in 2012.

Request – if anyone can write a ‘story of their walk’ when they go on Aycliffe Fell Walking Club trips, we’d like to hear from you. If you are signed up as a member of the Aycliffe Fell Walking Club website (and 18 of you have so far), you can contribute your posts to the site. Once they’ve been checked out, we’ll publish them. We’d really like this to become reality, as the site truly then becomes ‘yours’ as members.
