Summer 2020

04 June 2020

Put together during the global coronavirus pandemic, this issue examines how walking became a major outlet for millions of people; celebrates local adventures on foot and shares the creative ways that ramblers have stayed happy, healthy and connected during this difficult time. 

We also showcase some inspiring walking destinations further afield to add to your walking wish lists, offer ten tips on sourcing top gear without breaking the bank; test out a dozen ‘all purpose’ walking boots and Walk & Talk with Ramblers Scotland’s new president Lucy Wallace. We also reveal the winners of our annual volunteers awards. 

Spring 2020

26 February 2020

We spring into 2020 with a new-look cover promoting the new Don’t Lose Your Way tool enabling people to locate – and save – lost paths. We’re marking the 20th anniversary of the CROW act, which threw open acres of ‘mountain, moor, heath and down’ across England and Wales. And we take a look at ten hillside figures cut into the landscape. We Walk & Talk with long-distance record-breaking walker Ash Dykes; chat to mountaineer Simon Yates and ask pioneering GP Dr William Bird about his clever walking schemes.

Winter 2019

26 November 2019

The winter edition of walk is out now, with its usual mix of news, features and walk suggestions – and a particular focus on paths. In Picture of our Paths, we look at some of the challenges facing our path network and examine the collaborative ways our path maintenance volunteers are working. We enjoy a soul-stirring Big Walk along the Shropshire Way, which has been revived with the help of local Ramblers. We Walk & Talk with neuroscientist and navigation expert Kate Jeffreys, and head to Liechtenstein, Europe’s least visited country, to trial a brand-new trail through rippling mountain scenery.

The Autumn 2019 issue of walk is a special issue celebrating the 70th anniversary of the 1949 Act that laid down the blueprint for our national parks and trails, and enshrined our rights of way in law. Discover a new perspective on one of Britain’s first national parks along the Snowdonia Slate Trail; leave tourist hotspots behind with ten lesser known national park walks; and explore the exploding geysers, deep canyons and magnificent wildlife of the world’s first national park, Yellowstone in the USA.
