Maps - where would we be without them?

The Car Free Walks website is run as a 'labour of love'

We make no personal profit from it and are content with the warm glow of satisfaction when things go well and people tell us we do a good job. It also gives us an excuse to get out and explore the countryside and to buy lots of lovely paper maps to help us find our way when we get there.

Snowdon - my favourite UK mountain

An ode to the highest peak in Wales

Snowdon is my favourite mountain in the UK. I don’t mean the best: that title goes to An Teallach, traversed on a long, sunny autumn day a few years back. But Yr Wyddfa (to give it its proper title) is the one I keep coming back to. It simply ticks so many of the right walking boxes.

The mighty beeches of Berkhamsted

A family day out in the Home Counties

I’d never really thought about exploring Hertfordshire. The phrase ‘Home Counties’ drums up images of commuter towns, golf courses and… well, not much else. So when my sister suggested a walk on Berkhamsted Common with her 5-month old son, my instant reaction was that I’d actually rather be out in the Lakes or the Dales on a crisp winter’s day.
