Mile Marker Map

Start points of walks are shown with bouncing markers. Click a marker to reveal what mile number it is and what day of the walk it occurs on.


 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too. If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is available. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.

Finding the Gems

The miles have all be claimed for this stretch of the route and images and words are beginning to arrive.  Thank you to all the contributors.
