The pages in this section describe getting out into the fresh air and traveling somewhere under your own steam - either alone or much better as a small family group or with friends. The pages are records of some rewarding days out and hopefully they will also give others an incentive.
There are two main sections:
Day walks can completed in a single day. Hence they are often circular but can traverse from a to b where it may be possible to get a train or bus back to the start or you can walk it on both directions.
For each walk there will be a brief description, some photos, a map and any relevant experiece from the walk and external links.

The LDP pages outline the entire route and the stages of the the Path. LDP can vary from 1-20km to over a thousand or more. This leads to several walking stages that will make up the overall Path. Stages will be included and described, in some cases selectively
As with day walks - the paths undertaken are recorded in the same way here.
See the Long Distance paths home page to discover the paths covered to date.
There are three related topics:
Some long distance paths, such as the South West Coast Path, can sound frightening. The thought of a 1000km+ trek requiring 35km of climbing [that is equivalent to ~4 x tbe height of Everest] is enough to put all but keen walkers off - even before they think about the logistics. At best it often goes in the "one day" tray. However it is a stunning and rewarding walk and nearing the end a desire for it to continue starts to grow.
This is what led us to create "The Project" - we have linked several long distnace paths to create a "super long path" around the south of England.

There is a lot of material associated with walking today - about health benefits to routes, gear & literature. These pages will provide a few items that may be of use to future walkers.

In addtion to walking threekitchill.org.uk v2 also had a strong cycling section. This has been absent for the past 4-5 years and will be restored on thos site. The cycling section will provide a similar coverage as the walks with routes and some listings. It will also cover cycling events sucha s the Tour de France and some UK races.
A blog section may be added in the future.
