What do you think of Trailblaze?

Inline

Walking on the South Downs last week, I noticed these devices – Trailblaze checkpoints.  I thought they looked out of place, so I've been finding out more about them. They've already been installed on 8 National Trails, and the company behind the scheme has global ambitions. 

Please have a look at this website and, if you feel as I do, consider signing the petition. You don't have to live in the UK to express an opinion.

South Downs Way: forthcoming June

Inline

The reason I was walking there was to sample the South Downs Way, which is the subject of our forthcoming guidebook. Author Fiona Barltrop has lived on the Downs all her life and her photographs here  give you some idea of its appeal. Her book will be published next month, but you can pre-order it now or ask to be emailed when it's out.
