Pete's Walks - Latest News and Site History

Home    Latest Walks  Long-distance paths   Lake District   Chiltern Hills   Photographs    Links     Huntington's Disease Association



This page is in reverse chronological order, so that the latest news and the most recent changes are at the top of the page.

Note: I add walks to the Latest Walks section as and when I do them. I alter the 'Last update' date on the home page each time I do so. I do not update this page for each new walk, I only update this page when I make other changes to the site.
