I've been fil­ing CW walks away for years and al­ways take a selec­tion when we go on hol­i­day. Re­cently we were in the Lakes, fol­low­ing a su­per cir­cu­lar walk from El­ter­wa­ter over Ling­moor Fell and back along the Cum­bria Way. We’d just got to the top of Ling­moor and at the stile en­coun­tered two very friendly young men – who turned out to be Nick Hal­lis­sey and Tom Bai­ley! I was de­lighted to show them that we were us­ing a CW walk. Not long af­ter­wards we had lunch over­look­ing the Lang­dales, en­joy­ing this fan­tas­tic view. Thanks for the walks which are so con­ve­nient and well writ­ten. I know that if I fol­low a CW route, it has been well re­searched, is clearly de­scribed and easy to carry. Here’s to the next hol­i­day, Shrop­shire in Oc­to­ber – and I’ve got plenty of filed CW walks to choose from! Anne Green, Email. Ed says: Young men?
