    Hi,
    I’m 1 of your Twitter followers, & you’ve inspired me to do the Northampton Round. As I’m 60 next year, & I’ve just got the all clear for prostate cancer, I want to do a ‘big challenge’.
    Therefore, it’s my intention to do the walk in 24 hours if I can, & get sponsors etc.
    My question is- do you know of a full map of the route I can access to mark on my os maps (all3 of them)?
    I’ve just found your breakdown of your route on your site, & that will be very helpful- thank you.

    My contact is trevorredfern@me.com. @FramingTrev. 07790-774440

    Thanks, Trev.

    Hi David,
    Tackled your Kinewell Lake walk today (Thursday). We’d been to Kinewell before but not the extension along the river to Woodford Mill. Most enjoyable.
    You were wise to recommend wellies as I think the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse had recently passed by the river stretch!
    We were blessed with some watery sunshine too!
    Happy days.
    Maybe see you at the Worcester game.
    Regards,
    Tim & Sue

    Hi. Walk 92 looks lovely. Thought you might like to know that Old Barrack Yard, London, is where some iconic scenes from A Christmas Carol (the 1951 Alistair Sim version) were filmed. In particular, the end scene where Scrooge carries Tiny Tim under the arch. See the Filming Locations entry on IMDB.com: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044008/locations

    Hi, I am looking to Nordic Walk a circular 5km route from Leicester Cathedral at the start of September any suggestions?

  5. Re the Collyweston Walk. Thank you for including our village. A couple of small alterations if possible please. There were 3 cottages next to the Collyweston Slater. The building with the horse shoe used to be a forge. St Andrews Church contains an exhibition about Collyweston’s Royal Palace in The Lady Chapel which is open every day. The Village Shop on the High Street is run by Volunteers for the benefit of the Community and sells snacks, fresh sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, locally sourced products, etc. It is open 7 days a week and offers a warm welcome. 😊

    • Hi Sandra & thanks for passing on the information about your beautiful village.
      I’ve updated the blog with your comments & have also included a stock photo of the church plus one that I took of the shop.
      Many thanks once again & I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures.
      Kind regards
      Dave

    Hi, I heard your piece on the radio asking for walks from your door step. I have 6 walks in an around Broughton here https://broughtonbystander.wordpress.com/walks/ .

    • Hiya – how fabulous. Would you like us to pop them on our blog – with full accreditation etc to yourself etc? Thanks Dave

      • The Bystander says:

        Absolutely, help yourself 👍

      • Do you know what. You blog is fab, so rather than change anything, how’s about I do a great intro / build up for you & then we’ll just post the link straight to your blog – then you get the traffic as well. We could do one say every couple of nights if that ok. You should see an increase in traffic hopefully

      • The Bystander says:

        Thanks for the compliment Dave. I’m happy with whatever approach you think would work best to get the walks to a wider audience. If it increases traffic it might encourage me to update the blog more frequently, Most of the route descriptions were written back in 2012 and I’ve only been writing sporadically in recent years.
        Thanks – Stephen (The Bystander)

        However it has been a while since I wrote (or walked) some of them so they may need updating. I’ll let you know of any updates as and when.

  7. Carol says:

    We have done a few of the walks but not being locals, a map showing the walks would be really useful.

  8. John Collins says:

    Wonderful. Much better than the published leaflets. We did your Railway Children walk today and loved it. Only one thing – Bramwell drank in the Black Bull, not the Fleece. 🙂
    Super effort, much appreciated. Didn’t get lost once!! Will be doing more.

    We’ve just done the first three sections of the Nene Way over the last three days. We used the maps from the County Council but what we found invaluable and and so very interesting was the route information and planner on your website under (funnily enough) the Nene Way. However, stage 4 and 5 are not there. Did the contributor do these last two stages, and did they write up the route in the same way do you know? If so, where can we access it? we have thoroughly enjoyed the walk so far and what we have loved is reading about all the villages,towns, local industry, landmarks and interesting facts as we go along. Brilliant. Please pass on our thanks.

    • Hi Christine & thanks for your lovely comments.
      It’s a really simple explanation….I haven’t done the next stages yet 😉
      Watch this space

      • Christine curran says:

        Well that makes sense now! We have done the last two stages on sunday and Monday this week – as far as Oundle, so we have missed out the last 12 miles. My husband couldn’t get any more time off work, and at the moment 12 miles or so is my absolute max due to a foot condition. It was great but we were a little bereft without your guides!. We kept seeing villages, and churches and mills and wishing that we had some information about them! Beautiful weather though all five days.
        One point – on stage two – from Kislingbury to Cogenhoe – the Nene Way was completely closed off with a sign saying ‘private property’ just outside of Kislingbury at Upton. there was a newly laid tarmac path which we followed all the way to the Upton housing estate but it takes you quite a way off the Nene Way route, and there was absolutely no redirection signs.
        Anyway, hope you enjoy it when you get the time to do the last two stages. You should try to get your guides published into a book format – they are great!
        thanks again
        Christine

      • Thanks Christine for your kind comments. I’ve had to rewrite the route on the Kislingbury Circular Walk because of that closure. That housing development is going to be massive

    We did walk 7 yesterday which was beautiful we did this with our 2 spaniels I would just like to point out on number 17 on the guide would it be possible to add mind the road after the stile as we did not realise we had to crossover a road to then access the final field.Thanks

    Hi Dave, Love reading about he Ladies adventures along the Jurassic Way, section 4 was certainly a battle. Ashby St. Ledger is amazing and the Manor House is stunning and comes with a great history. A little correction, while the Crown Estates own the estate the Manor House is owned by the Guest family. Attached is an interesting article from Country Life. http://www.ashbymanorhouse.com/resources/images/site_specific/Ashby-St-Ledgers-Country-Life-Magazine-2017.pdf
    Keep up the good work
    Regards
    Finbarr

    Hi, thanks this is an amazing resource! I have just looked at your walk 109 round Hollowell. I checked the Anglia water webpage for Hollowell and on there it states that you need a permit to *park* there, and a fishing permit to *fish* but there’s no cost to just visit for a walk. I hope this clarifies things. W
