  4. I am so impressed with this project and your other list of walks you have completed, I have attempted to do some coastal walks, sections of The Thames Way, Cleveland Way, the Cornish Coastal path, the Welsh coastal path, many long distance walks from my home – the Wilberforce Way from Hull to York, the Minster Way from Beverley Minster to York Minster, the Wolds Way, the Chalkland Way, some of the Viking Way, and part of the Dales Way – would love to do more and you are an inspiration. In 2013 I camped out in my little tent for 27 nights on these long distance walks and often stay in YHA hostels.

    • I’m glad my wanderings are an inspiration but it sounds like you have been creating a fine web of memories of your own. Nights in the tent are the most memorable aren’t they – brings one closer to the landscape. Have you seen the wonderful Harvey Maps, Long Distance Path Chart? Good for dreaming and a reminder just how many there are on this Island.

    Hi, Your map mentions historic British counties, but in Scotland your map seems to have ignored both the historic counties and the current counties in favour of the short-lived 1970s “regions” (e.g. Strathclyde, Lothian). Using the historic counties is a lovely idea. Perhaps you could do it in Scotland too? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shires_of_Scotland

    • Hi Chris, That’s an excellent suggestion to use the shires of Scotland. I choose the historic English & Welsh counties as “chapters” for my walk as they represent geographically distinct and proportional regions without being far too fragmented like modern counties. I wasn’t aware that I had used the 1970’s regions for Scotland believing them to be the historic counties when I created the map so thanks for putting me right, I’ll update the the map accordingly when I get closer to Scotland.
