A few weeks ago The Ramblers were asking for 'mystery walkers' to undertake a 2 mile walk in an allocated area close to where they live in order to help them build a countrywide picture of the state of the nation's footpaths. I put my name down and have just received an email giving me a grid square and a list of questions to be answered. I don't tend to walk in my own area, as I usually head out to the Peak District, so it will be quite interesting to discover some of the footpaths that I live beside. I need to plan my own route within the grid square and so I'll have to dig out the relevant map first. I don't know when I'll get time to actually do the walk, especially as the nights are drawing in now and so I won't be able to do it after work. But hopefully within a month I'll have it done and dusted.
