I was in North Devon to join the poet Simon Armitage and walk a stretch of the South West Coast Path. A couple of years ago I accompanied Simon on a section of the Pennine Way for his book Walking Home, this year he’s writing the follow-up, imaginatively entitled Walking Away.

Paul Carter describes his intense experience of walking the Broomway to Foulness Island: "The poor visibility that can rapidly envelope the sands and the ease by which it is possible to become disorientated and end up walking out to sea, mean that many people have died over the years by making the wrong judgment on this very hazardous route."

Like the author Laurie Lee, Anastasia woke up one morning with the idea to walk south to the sea - and she did it! In this first instalment she has Big Ben, some Elvis Presley lookalikes and a herd of deer for company as she heads southwest along the Thames Path.

Whether clearing overgrowth, checking path diversions, leading a walk around a city park or national park, making sure the finances are in order or coordinating the management committee, every single volunteer helps to keep you walking.

It’s wonderful to see Walking for Health release 'Walking Works', a comprehensive summary of evidence for physical activity, specifically walking. This report makes the facts very clear; staying still kills and walking works.

What makes up a great view? The effort it takes to walk to a viewpoint or the unexpectedness of what you find? Or does a great view have something you simply can't explain?

So here I am, roped, harnessed and helmeted, clinging on to a narrow, rocky, vertical ridge, which juts out like a 50-metre high shark’s fin from the mountain below. I’m inching along its spine, and I daren’t risk looking down at the sheer drops on either side...

Latest research shows that half of 7 year olds do not exercise enough. So I thought I’d round up some kids who love the great outdoors and maybe they will inspire others to get out there and have some fun!
