This Walking Toolkit has been produced to help local communities develop walks in their local area.
This toolkit is divided into 3 sections:
This toolkit is a collection of resources that can be used to help with a task. It is not necessarily designed to be read from cover to cover – you can dip into it and pick out what you want, at any time.
The toolkit can be navigated just like a website, either by using the navigation buttons at the foot of each page, or by clicking on words highlighted in blue.
Most sections contain a ‘Useful Information’ box. The web addresses referenced can be immediately reached with a click of your mouse, providing you are on-line whilst using the toolkit.
At first glance, some of the work involved might seem detailed and complicated, but not all of it will necessarily apply to you. Just use what you need, skipping to the sections that are relevant and useful. The one thing that is essential to all projects is to TALK to all the relevant people. And remember that by gathering a good working group together, you can share tasks and lighten the load.
This toolkit has drawn upon material and publications about footpaths produced by a range of organisations including the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers, Paths for All, Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, Countryside Council for Wales and the former Countryside Commission. We would like to thank all of these organisations for the ideas and inspiration from their work, as well as the numerous individuals who have influenced our approach to this toolkit in any way.
Please note that guidance given in this toolkit is of a general nature and, if in any doubt, you should seek expert or legal advice.
