Trailman

Walking across Britain

Welcome to Trailman

I’m Peter Aylmer, an experienced walker and outdoor writer. On this website I’m sharing nearly 50 years of walking experience.

You’ll find day-by-day trail memories, from lowland walks to my own multi-day routes across each of the three nations.

And then aged 62 I learned to backpack, so it’s never too late!

Plus there are zoomable OS maps and plenty of hints and tips about the logistics of trail walking.

What’s new

The three Warcop Fells, on my North Pennines page

The West Highland Way in full

The Haycock group in the Western Fells of the Lake District

I’m also the author of the Cicerone guides to London and Essex. In January 2021 I launched my own series of Trailman guidebooks. The first five are all available here now.
