The man who has walked and still is walking, the Peak District

Britain, Europe and the World; he has no equal.


John Merrill 

 Walk Guides



"Hiking the sacred paths and trails of the world for others to follow".

"The miracle of life is not to fly in the air, or walk-on the water, but to walk on the earth"- Chinese saying.

"For every mile that you walk, you extend your life by 21 mins."
