We have developed maps to help encourage you to think more about walking or cycling for short journeys to work, school, shops or simply for leisure. Use them to see just how easy it is to travel around your area:
Walking is an easy and affordable way to develop an active lifestyle, simply by building walking into your daily routine. By opting to walk rather than driving for the occasional short journey, it's possible to quickly achieve the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise without the need to significantly change your lifestyle.
Our walking maps indicate the distances of the routes and provide an idea of the length of time you may want to set aside for each walk.
They show various popular walking routes in and around some of our main towns:

These maps illustrate the distance you can cover on foot or on a bike. They highlight the fact that many local journeys can be made easily by walking or cycling for a modest amount of time.
With these maps, we aim to provide simple and clear information that includes the main shopping areas, schools, community facilities and other places of interest.
The maps also indicate on and off road cycling routes and areas with 20 mph speed limits.
