The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Needed fitted insoles in a hurry to do Fan Dance the following day, with Avalanche Endurance Events, and in brand new boots. Not ideal! All the staff were friendly and experienced. My insoles were done by Rosie, who does hiking boot insoles and many for Ski boots. Rosie was very thorough and careful to make sure that the fitting to my feet was perfect - then the fitting to the boot. I did the long version of the Fan Dance the following day (the Woodhouse Route, which is a good deal more demanding than than the normal Fan Dance Route).. More steep ups and more steep downs and much more 'difficult round' to cover. Rosie's care paid off 100%. I had started the route with damaged toes, but the fitted insoles allowed me to complete the route with no problems at all. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Much great kit for mountains and ski slopes - Brilliant fitted insoles..... Thank you so much Rosie. Richard

Store is rather small and claustrophobic, not much room to actually look at the gear on sale. There is however a reasonable selection of certain items, primarily clothing, choice of other items in-store is limited, no doubt also due to space. Went into look at/buy new ski poles and helmet. Selection of both was limited, was told that everything they had in store was on display at the time (last winter). Bit frustrating since buying some things online isn't ideal and I have to travel over an hour to get here. Overall just not an ideal environment particularly if trying to consider a purchase potentially worth hundreds of pounds.

You do get what you pay for. Everything is cheap but it's not good quality. Most things work as they are intended but would only last one season

Helpful budget range of travelling things

The North Face

Your staff all came and said hi to us and asked us if we needed help like immediately and your girls there were really sweet and nice and friendly to us (: thanks for being nice humans!

Some nice helpful staff but I am not convinced that all of them know enough about their products to trust them without doing your own research into stuff.Probably ok if you are just buying for everyday use but not if you are heading off to some serious terrain or situations.
