Hiking network links thousands of places around Britain

A new hiking network is combining 7,000 different walking routes across Britain.

The project, known as Slow Ways, was created by Dan Raven-Ellison, from London, in an attempt to get people walking between locations they might otherwise drive to.

A country-wide map was created by volunteers during the first lockdown using the Southampton-based national mapping agency Ordnance Survey.

Later this year, Mr Raven-Ellison wants 10,000 walkers to test out routes that were drawn up and see whether they are feasible.
