Take a Walk

By Linda Tancs

Writer Robert Louis Stevenson once remarked that the forest changes and renews a weary spirit.  That’s good news for England’s Midlands: the centre of England, once a hub for the Industrial Revolution, is being renewed and recharged with the dedication of 200 square miles to conservation.  Dubbed The National Forest, it embraces parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire.  And what better way to explore a forest than on foot!  This year marks the launch of the National Forest Way, a 75-mile waymarked path traversing the region.  Coinciding with the launch of the trail is the National Forest Walking Festival.  Taking place through 29 May, you’ll have over 70 walks to choose from as you ramble in the woodlands.
