e3d67a8c-c6e3-4875-8b6a-9d2bbe25827d
THE National Trust has issued a list of 12 recommended walks to be taken throughout next year.

Ranging from a couple of miles to six miles, they include bracing coastal walks and those where you can catch a glimpse of rare red squirrels.

Jo Burgon, Head of Access and Recreation at the National Trust, said: “We’ve picked a selection of walks for 2008 that reflect the seasonal delights of the British landscape.

“From a bracing walk along the Gower coast in South Wales in January to the autumnal splendours of the Chiltern beech woods at Ashridge, we hope these suggestions will encourage you out to explore these and other places that refresh the spirit.”

The walks are:

•    January – Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula in south Wales.
•    February – Kingston Lacy in Dorset.
•    March – Trelissick Gardens in south Cornwall.
•    April – Hatchlands Park in Surrey.
•    May – Brockhampton in Herefordshire.
•    June – Upper Wharfedale in Yorkshire.
•    July – Arnside Knott on the Lancashire/Cumbrian border.
•    August – Longshaw Estate in Derbyshire.
•    September – Formby on the Lancashire Coast.
•    October – Ashridge in Hertfordshire.
•    November – Dunwich Heath on the Suffolk coast.
•    December – Castle Ward in Northern Ireland.

Full details of the walks with descriptions will be available in the November issue of Out&About magazine on sale 18 October. To subscribe to the magazine, click here.
