List of walks

Here are the "named" walks in Britain that I have completed. National Trails are asterisked. Some relevant web links are provided.

1 The Watercress Line is not a footpath, but a steam railway; however, it is open to walkers one day a year when no trains run. It conveniently connects the Hangers and Itchen Ways.
