| While the Midlands are not instantly recognisable as a walking destination there are many places where walking can be a real pleasure. For a start there are many places of outstanding beauty such as Cannock Chase, Arden, The Mease, Charnwood Forest, The Fens, The Leicestershire & Nottinghamshire Wolds, The Lincolnshire Wolds, The Trent Valley, The Potteries, The Cheshire & Shropshire Plains, Staffordshire and Sherwood Forest. In between there are many lovely countryside walks with quaint English towns and villages serving as havens for rest and refreshment before, during and after a walk. Through the efforts of guest contributors like Ken Brockway, Adam Gallimore and others and with a few of my much too infrequent efforts added I offer a selection of walks for Midlanders to enjoy on these pages.
