Walk 4 life

I have added a few walks on Wenlock Edge to the Walk 4 Life website. This is a site that allows you to print out maps of walks, do them and then add the mileage covered to your personnal page. The miles are added up and you can see a graph with the distance covered each week, month or year. This is a great way to motivate yourself to get fit, adds interest for children or maybe just encourages competitiveness between other users of the site. Two of the walks i have added are waymarked routes that are already well used, the other one links the car parks at Much Wenlock and Presthope effectively linking two existing walks together, giving a walk of just under 5 miles.
The trees are just starting to show the first signs of Autumn with the leaves beginning to turn all shades of yellow, orange and brown, this will keep getting better over the next few weeks. Its a fantastic time for getting out for a walk, excellent routes to make the most of the colours are, Lea Quarry walk from Presthope car park and either of the two waymarked routes from Wilderhope Manor. I'll add some photos as Autumn progresses.
