Welcome to the new LDWA Walks Database

LDWA Local Groups organise over 1000 Social Walks every year, across the whole of the country.

This new facility makes it much easier to look back over this unique library of walks, perhaps to inspire future walks, or possibly just to trigger memories of some of our past epic excursions.

As well as recording overview details of all fifteen thousand-plus of LDWA's social walks since 2008, the database also makes it possible for additional information to be added to each walk.   This may include photographs, walk reports, and GPX files.   Where a GPX file is available, the route is shown on a map and LDWA Members can download the file for their own use.

There are 44 walks databases, one for each of our Local Groups.   Each database is easily searchable from either a map, or in a list, as shown in the screenshot.   Where additional information (e.g. a gpx file) is available, this is indicated by a small "+" symbol on the map or list.

At the bottom of this page is a list of all our Local Groups, organised by geographic region.   Clicking on the Group name will take you straight to the map view of the walks database for that Group.

Happy browsing!
