Writing about web page http://www.walkingworld.com/home/index.asp
A great days walking was had in the lovely early autumn sunshine of yesterday. The weather couldn't have been better (although its hard to imagine that looking out at a blanket of grey this morning).
Walked from Snowshill- Stanway-Stanton-Snowshill, great varied scenery and terrain with some steep climbs. Woods, banks, open fields and countryside, lovely villages plus masses of pheasant, grouse and even a young deer. The tower at Broadway was in view as we walked back to the village, and to top it all was a gorgeous fire-ball sunset from the Fosseway on the drive back. It was great to be able to walk in such great scenery just an hour from home, and without using any nasty motorways.
It was the first time I had bought a walk on-line at Walking World which is pretty good – you can search for a walk and it gives you directions with photographs, where to park is applicable, a road map and the section of the OS map required with walk marked out. The walk cost £1.50 but you can subscribe and have access to all the walks. All well and good except for the fact that the instructions seemed to miss out a whole section! Good thing we had the OS to give us some bearings!
