Q. Please be aware that I do not drive and must rely on public transport. It would be most useful if a) before accessing a walk route it could be stated if the walk could be accessed relatively easily by public transport (not necessarily from the start). As an example, Abergavenny is on the railway network and is an ideal point for starting walking Sugarloaf, Blorenge or Skirrid Fawr b) the public transport was reliable. I know this is out of your scope but in certain parts of the country, buses run perhaps twice a day and not at all on weekends. The railway network is more reliable. Even though I live in London, a train journey of around 3 hours is worth it if the scenery is splendid. I have a railcard which helps keep the price down! Thanks

A. If you follow the 'Locate the start of this walk using Google Maps' link on each walk description it will show you the detailed location of the start of the walks. You can then zoom out and identify bus stops and nearby railway stations.
For example if you choose Walk route map c104 Orrest Head and Troutbeck from Windermere and then click on the 'Locate the start of this walk using Google Maps' link you will get This Google Map Page. On it you can clearly see Windermere Railway Station and all the nearby Bus Stops
A simple search on the internet will enable to to find a local (and more importantly up-to-date) time table information for public train and bus transport that passes near to the walk start.
Hope this helps . . .
