Top 5 Dark Sky locations in Great Britain
OS is supporting Walking With The Wounded's 'Walking Home For Christmas' - and you can win an entry pack
We’ve got 150 entry packs containing special Santa hats which we’ll be sending out to people who have pledged to #GetOutside. Consult your maps…. where would you walk?
The campaign, backed by Nick Knowles, Julia Bradbury, Sir Chris Bonington and GB’s Invictus Games captain Dave Henson among others, will see thousands of people being sent WWTW Santa hats, pulling on their walking boots and having an adventure on their very own doorstep – be it 1 mile or 100 miles this December. Last year 500 walkers raised more than £100,000 and this year the campaign aims to raise enough launch its employment programme for homeless veterans in five more locations across the UK.
Anyone who signs up will also be in the running to win a personalised OS map which will be given to selected walkers who have shown particular a commitment or invention with their route.
There are already some remarkable walks in the pipeline to inspire you, including:
