The Ordnance Survey have published a list of the top twenty places for walking, by grid square, all calculated scientifically, apparently. It strikes me then ,shouldn’t we here have a set of walks for each of these? It’s a big task to be completed over a time, but worth starting soon.
These are worthy places with many of which I am familiar. Five of the are Edale though, which is a fine place with great walking, packed in season- but can’t somewhere else have a go too?
Anyway, while I look at the walks, what do you think of the list? –
- Snowdon (Summit) SH6054 (OL17 – Snowdon; Landranger 115) (and see article)
- Edale SK1285 (OL1 – Dark Peak Area; Landranger 110)
