I’m Peter Aylmer, an experienced walker and outdoor writer. On this website I’m sharing 40 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.
I’m also the author of the Cicerone guides to London and Essex. In January 2021 I launched my own series of Trailman guidebooks. You can buy the first, to the Stort Valley Way, here. Guides to the Forest Way and Three Forests Way should be out in late April.
I’ve plenty more content to add – I’m expecting to add another page every week through the summer, so come back soon!
Latest additions: the Lochaber and Great Glen section of my Cross-Scotland Walk and the Central Fells of the Lake District.
