Walking is so many things. It is exercising, its appreciation of nature and it’s also an opportunity to meet new people. It was through a shared love of walking that I met a Londoner called Lucy. As she is also a web designer so I asked her to create the Rural Strides website. After all, it takes a walker to know a walker. Lucy, together with friend Emily, has set up a London walking group called The Walking Post. All their routes are within an hour of London and are accessible by train. Recently, they have established a North to South London trail, the first of its kind, and through it came to the notice of the team at Radio 4’s Ramblings.

As the highways and byways of the Western Weald rapidly turn into a quagmire each winter, we thought it might be nice for us country mice to escape the mud and head to the pavements and parks of London Town. Clean boots in November, who thought that was even possible! With Lucy and Emily leading the way, there will be no need for an A-Z and they might even regale us with the story of their walk and talk with Clare Balding.

Pencil the date in now – full details to follow.
