Cover of Spring 2022 Walk magazine
The Spring issue steps back in time with 10 history walks, plus Ramblers Routes that touch on the past, whether it’s a castle ruin or Norman church. We unveil the new Ramblers branding, take a look at ways to tackle litter in the countryside and hear from Ramblers members who met the love of their life through walking. There’s interviews with ‘king of the fells’ Joss Naylor, farmer and presenter Jimmy Doherty and journalist Anita Sethi who was prompted to walk the Pennine Way after a distressing incident on a train.
