Of the countless long-distance walks which have been developed, threading across swathes of Britain and Ireland, some of the outstanding ones have been those celebrating, and named after counties. Some, like the Oxfordshire Way, may follow single track across the shire; others like the Rutland Round, may make a ring around it. Mostly they stay within the county which is their theme, but they need not: the Oxfordshire Way begins in Gloucestershire, the Hertfordshire Way cuts through Middlesex, but in essence they belong to their home shire.
In addition, there are county border walks, and one of the projects for this site is to develop more of these.
Featured here we have:
- The Berkshire Way (an old BBC project we will be reviving)
- The Buckinghamshire Way (an ongoing WildþingUK project)
- The Hertfordshire Way
- The Middlesex Greenway
- The Oxfordshire Way
- The Rutland Round (which may also be a border walk)
