The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

The Range, Wigan

Chapel Lane Retail Park, Chapel Ln, Wigan WN3 4HG, UK – 01942 235838

The Range has a great variety of goods for the home and garden, many of which you struggle to find elsewhere. The Wigan branch has good car parking and is easy to access. There is a good crafts and art section in addition to the other stock, plus some lighting and furniture.

This is a good place for a wide range of goods, hence the name I suppose. Easy free parking and easy access for anyone with a wheelchair. Prices are good but some of the cheap tools you need to watch out for as the quality is not good. Can highly recommend it for most things.

DW Sports Stores

41, The Grand Arcade, 23 Crompton St, Wigan WN1 1BH, UK – 01942 248413

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.
