National Trails Calendar 2017

November 29, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

National Trails are long distance walking, cycling and horse riding routes through the best landscapes in England and Wales.  There are 15 National Trails. Walkers can enjoy them all, cyclists and horse riders can enjoy the Pennine Bridleway and the South Downs Way, as well as sections of the other Trails.  In total, England and Wales have around 2,500 miles of National Trail.

The England Coast Path will be the newest (and longest) National Trail when it is complete in 2020. The first few sections are now open and more will be opening over the next few months.

For the first time National Trails have produced a calendar and I am pleased to say that two of my photos have been included.  

May is shown below and features Elegug Stacks on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.  They are two pillars of limestone, a geographical feature caused naturally by the sea eroding weaknesses in the rock. They stand in the sea and are inaccessible from land – not least when the Ministry of Defence has closed off the nearby area to test tanks!

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path twists and turns its way for 186 miles along the most breathtaking coastline in Britain. It covers almost every kind of maritime landscape from rugged cliff tops and sheltered coves to wide-open beaches and winding estuaries.

 

 

September features the cliffs at Hunstanton on the Norfolk Coast Path. They show an amazing slice of Britain's history and originate from just after the Jurassic period. This makes them 100 million years old and some of the oldest rocks visible in East Anglia.

The path takes you through fantastic scenery including a Roman Road, the unique Brecks, low cliffs and extensive sandy beaches and dunes and offers something for everyone from a gentle stroll to a 93 mile.

 

 

The calendar can be purchased for only £7.99 from the National Trails Shop  along with many other items which will make ideal gifts at anytime of year as well as for Christmas.

All profits are put towards the costs of promoting National Trails and supporting the official website.  This work is not funded by government or anyone else, so the more you buy the more they can do.
