What people are saying about go4awalk.com
"I have managed to walk with so many new friends that I've found from your site, it really does work!
"Thanks for a great site - just found it and it's brill!
"I must say that I have been overwhelmed with responses to my message. It has been lovely and I've met some really nice people . . . I feel terrible that I am having to refuse walks with some walkers as I simply don't have enough time!
"I think your service is a fantastic idea, and exactly what I've been looking for as I have an eTrex and find loading waypoints by hand very tedious"
Helen Simpson, Essex
"Thanks for the service you provide; we have been on many of your walks and find the instructions very helpful."
John Cuthbert, Preston
"Your website is superb, and in terms of planning walks is becoming almost as indispensable as the 7 volumes of the gospel according to St Wainwright.
". . . excellent web site for any of you who want to go for a walk this weekend - be it in the Lakes or anywhere else
BBC Radio 2
"I have completed all the AW peaks, in 66 days of walking using your excellent routes. I have found them absolutely reliable, and have not come across any mistakes. I tell everyone that I meet on the fells about your wonderful web site and shall continue to use you for further walking in other areas! Well done and thank you to your team and contributors!!!"
Katrina Brayshaw, Harrogate
"I am just writing to say Thank You. I have just finished walking the highest 100 Wainwrights. Most of these were completed with walks from your wonderful site. As I am usually a lone walker the clear directions and compass references are really reassuring and have kept me on track even in mist and hailstorms (as I found myself in on my way up Seatallan this weekend)."
"Great site! I printed of the notes that you have for the Yorkshire three Peaks and they were brilliant. The team that I walked with at the weekend all commented on how accurate they were. Thanks"
John Carney, Birmingham
