The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

B&M Bargains Store

60 Newbottle St, Houghton le Spring DH4 4AF, UK – 0330 838 9130

Great store, Great prices and very helpful knowledgeable staff.

This store is usually pretty well stocked with lots of variety and great prices. Staff are all friendly and willing to help both customers and each other. The main issues are checkouts are too small in size and number. The car park is a bit dark and dingy but not a major issue. All in all well worth visiting for a bargain locally!

White's Candy

7 Newbottle St, Houghton le Spring DH4 4BB, UK – 07837 463532

Everything you need from a sweet shop, but with added extras and root beer! All the things you want to scoff in secret - right there to be yours. If you have a lust for liquorice or like to lick a lolly then this is the place for you. They also invent some of the most unbelievable shakes and cakes. They make 'death by chocolate' look like it was certified by Weight Watchers. The staff are awesome. They only know me as a customer, but when I was there and felt unwell they wouldn't let me leave and insisted on driving me home. Beat that for customer care.

Great service. Friendly staff. Hot food. Sweets. Great combination.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
