This issue is out to show everyone how easy it is to go walking from your doorstep, highlighting the launch of the Britain's Best Walking Neighbourhood Award. We've also got ten great walks through the towns and cities that have forged British culture and identity, plus an interview with urban explorer Daniel Raven-Ellison, who is spearheading the campaign to make London the world's first National Park City. Other features focus on discovering Edinburgh, the Ramblers' work with National Grid to remove pylons from the landscape, and a Cornish coast-to-coast trail exploring the county's tin mining heritage. Our gear section includes the best daypacks for men and women, with a practical guide to packing for a day hike.

It's winter! In this issue take a look at the history of countryside access in Britain, hear about winter hillwalking in the Cairngorms and get expert reviews of the latest waterproof jackets and overtrousers. We also visit Britain's top ten small but very special summits in our 'mini mountains' feature, head off to the Austrian Alps with legendary mountaineer Peter Habeler and discover the best of Anglesey. We've also got plenty of competitions, and interviews with intrepid traveller (and early pioneer or Ramblers walking holidays) Beryl Vincent, Nick Brown – the founder of leading outdoor brands Nikwax and Paramo – and Munro-bagging stand-up comedian Ed Byrne.
