This page provides an outline of the origins of the site, the new aims and the current level of completeness
An overview of the site can be found here
Some of the proposed content has previously been pubished on earlier versions of the THREEKITCHENHILL [family] website. Those pages first appeared around 2010 and followed a similar structure around long distance paths and day walks.
Over time threekitchenhill developed and had to undergo two migrations, each requiring a rewrite. On each occassion the number of pages never regained the previous level. This was not only because the management of the site software was becoming top heavy and the update route slow and cumbersome but we were spendng more and more time walking!
The new site is now based on a simpler framework and we will be able add new pages and update existing pages more easily.
One of the primary aims of the new site was to separate the walks material from the family site. Whilst many of the walks have been undertaken by family groups of two or more - most non-family readers will most probably not be interested in the family material.
The preparation for a day walk or long distance path stage takes some time to ensure that the day goes to plan ie there is enough time to get to the start, undertake the walk (with refreshments) and get back to base. This is often quite a challenge since it is likley that public transport will figure at least one end of the event. If you are lucky enough to have a walking holiday - the week will depend on the thoroughness of the logistics research & preparation. This will include bus/train times, and do these services even exist?, checking ferry and tide times, parking, weather etc
Overall this is what this site sets out to acheive:
Providing the above goes smoothly it will provide a firm foundation to add further LDP and Daywalks at an increased rate.
