Good Walks Un-spoiled

Below are walks I have managed to record the route of using the latest mobile wizadry. I can now show these as routes with points of interest (at least for me they are) and even the occasional photo. I've included some brief notes for the POI to whet your appetite.

For anyone new to this page, there are some brief notes on the controls below, just click on the arrow to go to the walks...

  • Maps are zoomable with control in the top left or a mouse-wheel.
  • The button above the zoom control re-centers the map.
  • You can change the underlying map from the list in the top right of the map.
  • Move the mouse over the flag to get a small preview of the image
  • You can click on the flags to popup another preview.

  • Click on the title to open a full size image in a new tab.
  • Click on 'Info' to repositition the information section on the right.
  • The key in the bottom corner tells which flags are which and you can open the pop-up by clicking on them.
  • For anyone with climacophobia (fear of climbing hills) the green graph in the bottom left of the map opens a profile of the elevation on the route. I don't claim it to be accurate, but it will give you an idea of how hilly the walk might be.

  • In the summary maps, the circle shows the rough area covered by the walk, so you can where you are in relation to everywhere else.
