Where do we walk? And how far?

We are often asked "Where do you walk, and how far?"  Well, here are the answers.

Where do we walk?

Many of our routes in recent years are plotted below and you can see most are within easy reach of the Vale of Belvoir as well as many in the Peak District (see Peak District Weekends for more details).  For comparison, the locations of walks on the Winter 2017/18 Programme are shown as red diamonds below.

Notes for editors.  The image above is a screen scan of a page from GPS Track Editor ( www.gpstrackeditor.com ) which has the unusual property of being able to display multiple tracks or routes (in this case 166) on top of OpenStreetMap maps.  Tracks have been uploaded as .gpx files from GPS devices and routes have been created in  OS Maps (https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/ ) and downloaded as .gpx files

And how far?

Our walks in the Winter are usually between 6 and 12 miles as shown below but in the Summer we also have mid-week Evening Strolls which are shorter.  This chart shows how many recent walks fit into the various distance categories.
