National Trust invite to the Great British Walk


THIS autumn, the National Trust will celebrate the Great British Walk by unveiling a walking festival with hundreds of specially-selected walks revealing secret spots and special stories that can only be discovered on foot.

Running from September 1 to November 3, the festival encourages everyone to explore the outdoors.

Walking trails have been made for National Trust locations including Uppark, Woolbeding and Petworth Park.

Petworth Park hides centuries of archaeological remains, and excavations in past weeks have made all sorts of intriguing finds, now revealed on a new self-led walk that takes visitors to special sites across the park.

The ancient, lichen-covered Woolbeding Bridge is the start and finish point of a two-mile self-guided circular walk that follows the picturesque River Rother.

At Uppark, a new self-guided route takes visitors on a meander through the meadow, which reveals magnificent views of the South Downs.

The majority of self-led trails are available as downloads, making it easy to plan walks.
