There is a dedicated page for each long distance path and the plan is to add a sub page for each stage.

Wainwright used the "Coast to Coast" path as an example, for others to follow, demonstrating that it is possible for anyone to create a new path from the existing network of rights of way and common/access land.

The paths marked (*) above are such creations - there is no official path for these routes but a long distance path can be engineered from existing routes and paths. Perhaps the English Coast Path will one day included some of these paths.

See also the day walks index page for occasional walks.
