COVID-19 Update - 28 March - The pandemic continues to have increasing implications for all and the leisure and hospitality sector are no exception. We have therefore moved to a position where all planned walking itineraries and luggage transfers that Walking Support are handling up until the 31 May 2020 are being stopped but hopefully re-arranged for a later date, if this is the client's desire.
Walking Support has been contacting the many accommodation and service providers to address this position and as the implications of such cancellations become clearer we will be communicating further with our customers.

We are being encouraged to get daily exercise and some folk might be thinking of walking sections of the many defined walking routes in the countryside. We and indeed many counrtyside rangers are aware that where there are farm gates etc., which farmers may be using daily, we do not want walkers to be contaminating them. With this in mind we would advise the following.
If you are thinking of travelling to a walk by any form of transport please do not do so while the present crisis on. You probably won't be allowed to anyway within the next few days. If walking from home please avoid walking in sections where there are farm gates, styles etc. and have gloves with you to use if you do come across a closed gate. Remember also to wash your hands thoroughly when you get home.
Our current advice is that you walk by yourself or with only one other family member and keep at least 2 meters apart at all times if you come across another walker. Please do not use transport to get to the start of your walk.
Keep well and keep others well. While this guidance is given today the situation is changing daily so follow the latest official advice.
