Honister Yew Tree by Simon[_3_]
Does anyone know if the Honister Yew Tree is still open for business in Borrowdale? I've tried ringing as I need to book tables for the weekend but I can't get through, despite being persistent. Simon -- Outdoor and indoor activity features http://www.coolactiv.com Video production,...

Sat Nav by Bill Ridgeway
I am looking for a Sat Nav in order to set a route from home to the start point of walks in the countryside. Now for the difficult part. The destination point (some may call it a 'Point of Interest' or a 'Favorite') may be expressed as a PostCode, Grid Reference or (and here's the tricky bit)...

Strange accident - climber saved by a 57 year old plane crash! by Jhimmy
I know this is about a climber and not a walker, but it will be of interest to many. A climber on Bienn Eighe last December fell and was saved by falling on a 57 year old plane wreckage. http://www.grough.co.uk/view/2009/05/06/crash-propeller-saved-avalanche-climber-in-fall/ Jhimmy

On a recent trip to Islay I came across signs at the start of the track to Beinn Tart a Mhill saying 'MoD leased property No public access' so I made a Freedom of Information request to the Ministry of Offence. Their reply says: 'The MOD did lease this property and the associated access road...

TR Snowdon by Geoff Berrow
Went for a walk up the Llanberis path to the summit of Snowdon on Sunday. The halfway cafe had an annoying generator chugging away, even more annoyingly in the lee of the building. The railway was running to Clogwyn and the path was very busy from that point on. I was surprised that the...

Worst road to a mountain by Jhimmy
Having driven through Dent (Yorkshire's very narrow village) down the single track road of Deepdale to the foot of Gragareth yesterday and encountered narrow, pot holed, steep inclines, gates, hairpin bends, steep drops along with a large farming community driving aluminum trailers. I'd like to...

Looking for walking website by John[_8_]

The trip reports were superb, and he had a website showing his photos. Probably around a year ago I think. He was a regular poster here and...

Virtual Helvellyn by Tom Crispin
Looking at Street View on Google maps, I was wondering how I could have a virtual walk up Helvellyn. 360 degree photos every footstep sized click from Patterdale to the summit would do the trick. And to make it more realistic I could wear my walking boots, stomp a bit of mud, grass and rocks...

TR: A day (and battle) on the South Downs by sandy saunders
Crisp and frosty start for my walk today, just like yesterday's walk, but the sun soon started to warmed things up! Walked local yesterday, which meant no driving, but today I ventured for a short drive east to St Roche's Hill, north of Chichester. Left home at 06:30, having had to do some...
