In autumn 2012 the NT launched its 'Great British Walk' campaign. We are putting 100 of the best walks in a pocket-sized paperback. From Stonehenge to Sutton Hoo, from spooks in East England to shipwrecks in Cornwall, from mountains to beaches, this a great guide to get you outdoors and exploring the glories of the English landscape. The walks are organised regionally and range from 2 miles to 8 miles in length. Family friendly walks are specially flagged, as are walks that are particularly good at certain times of year. Each walk includes a brief introduction, a map, step-by-step directions and things to look out for, including historical sites, birds and plants.
