Walking Advice


You should not rely only on the walk descriptions given on this web-site. It is your responsibility to ensure that the walk you are planning, coupled with the actual and potential walking conditions, are within your capabilities. You should plan your route in advance of your walk using a detailed map (the Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure series titled “The English Lakes” offers good, clear detail and a large scale of 2½ inches to the mile). Walking can be a dangerous activity and is undertaken entirely at your own risk, it is your responsibility to carry, to know how to use and to actually use the proper equipment when walking, including, but not limited to:
  • • footwear and clothing appropriate to the current and potential conditions plus extra in case you become injured and need to wait for help in an exposed place;
  • • a detailed map of the area to be walked and a compass (you should seek training from a skilled person if you do not have experience in map/compass reading for walking);
  • • food and drink for the duration of your walk plus some extra for emergencies;
  • • a basic first aid kit and the skills to use it; and
  • • equipment to attract attention if you get incapacitated, injured, stuck or lost - a whistle and flashlight at the minimum.
You should not walk alone. You should advise a responsible person of your planned route and an estimated time of return. Such person should be advised to inform the emergency services if you fail to return. Some footpaths are on private land and it is your responsibility to ensure that you do not damage private property or interfere with other activities on the land such as farming or hunting.
